Description


A swatch of the fabric used to make President Eisenhower’s apron, measuring 10.5 x 11.5 unfolded, printed with small depictions of various presidents. Includes a detailed letter of provenance on White House letterhead from Lillian Rogers Parks, who was a best-selling author as well as housekeeper and seamstress at the White House for over 30 years, from President Hoover through President Eisenhower. In part: “I am proud to say I made one of President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s favorite garments—his cooking apron. It was made of the most unusual fabric—a piece of tan material with the pictures of many Presidents…The President loved to wear the apron, and he would sit down among his guests when he was cooking over the charcoal grill at the White House or Gettysburg still wearing it.” Also accompanied by a most fortunate and historic photo of President Eisenhower actually wearing the apron described. The Raleigh DeGeer Amyx Collection.
