Dogs, cats, horses, and cows – as well as far more unusual animals – have called the White House and its grounds home over the last two centuries. Join me, Reference Specialist Kristi Finefield, for a visual tour of the menagerie of animals that have been Presidential pets on Wednesday, October 18th at 3pm EDT. Register here.
Hundreds of animals have lived around or inside the White House. Here is a sneak peek of just a few that will make an appearance in my presentation:
- Register to attend the virtual presentation: Finding Pictures: Presidential Pets, which will take place live on October 18th from 3:00-4:00pm EDT.
- The Finding Pictures virtual presentations from the Prints & Photographs Division are recorded and available on the Library’s website. Please enjoy past Finding Pictures talks online.
- Dogs have been the most common pet at the White House. Check out a selection of Presidential pooches in the Prints & Photographs Online Catalog.
