Glimpse of Calvin Coolidge's White House: East Sitting Hall

This photograph of the East Sitting Hall by Ralph Waldo Magee was taken in 1928 during the Calvin Coolidge administration. The East Sitting Hall, located on the Second Floor of the Executive Mansion, is recognized for its high, arched windows. At the time, the desk of the Ceremonial Officer, who oversaw White House social functions, was in the East Sitting Hall during the social season in order to be near the First Lady.
