President Bush’s bifocals, repaired after cracking on Inauguration Day

President Bush’s personally-owned and -worn bifocal eyeglasses, featuring large lenses in gold-tone aviator-style frames. Accompanied by a glasses case stamped by Carr & Busch of Washington, DC, President Bush’s optician for two decades of his accomplished life. Includes a letter of provenance on White House letterhead from NSC White House staffer Larry Branscum. In part: “The gold frame prescription eyeglasses are those of President George Bush. He owned and wore them. At one time a lens was totally cracked. Later it was repaired. I served at the White House for more than ten years while attached with the United States Army and the National Security Council…The cracked lens occurred on Inaugural Day 1/20/89 pm.” Also shown online is a 1994 photo of Mr. Amyx with President Bush’s personal assistant, Patty Presock, who kindly befriended Mr. Amyx and helped him make the connections to acquire this item. An unusual, personal presidential artifact with a unique backstory.
