The Carters Host a Picnic

Creator: Joseph H. Bailey, National Geographic Society, September 13, 1978.

The Carters often hosted picnics on the White House South Lawn. In September 1978, race car drivers came to the White House for a reception given in honor of the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing. Black and white checkered tablecloths were used to mimic the flag waved to signal the end of a race.
