Gerald Ford Portrait

Creator: Everett Raymond Kinstler, 1977.

During America's Bicentennial in 1976, President and Mrs. Gerald R. Ford hosted State Dinners for leaders of many nations who came to honor the United States. The Fords always followed their formal entertainments with dancing in the Main Entrance Hall. President Ford used the White House grounds, especially the Rose Garden, more than most presidents for events, ceremonies, speeches, and press conferences. The Fords had four children, Michael, Jack, Steven, and Susan. Susan Ford lived at the White House until she attended college.
