Description of Upstairs at the White House by J. B. West ePub
“Upstairs at the White House: My Life with the First Ladies” is a great book if you want to learn more about some of the first ladies of the past. J. B. West and Mary Lynn Kotz are the authors of this attractive book. A very tactful, thorough set of memories of the White House itself and the families ranging from FDR through the first months of the Nixon presidency. Fascinating descriptions of the management of the residence itself as well as the individual families who live there in his time. A fantastic book that looks at an untold story of history: The lives of the first ladies. Not only does West take us into a behind the scenes look at the operation of the White House, an ordeal far more involved than you would think, but we also get candid insights into the secret lives of the First Family and their visitors.
Interesting book about the families that occupied in the White House from Presidents Roosevelt to Nixon. JB, the head usher, gives an insider’s look at the First Ladies and the way they made the house their own. Fascinating on many levels, it’s a unique microcosm of our changing society. The shift in social status and the way things are done, as Roosevelt’s upper-crust lifestyle exits, compared to the bread and butter of Harry Truman’s Middle America. Mami Eisenhower’s velvet gloves fifties-style housewife contrasts Jackie Kennedy’s upper crust finishing school that brought a new elegance to the White House. Everything is lovingly detailed from the strange requests, the guest and parties, births, and deaths, making each First Family unique. This book concentrates on women thrust into a peculiar position, torn from their regular lives, to create the illusion of normalcy for their families, all while being a role model for a country that has not quite figured out exactly what they are supposed to do. However, if you are interested in the history of the mansion itself, this would be a worthwhile read.
