CARTER WHITE HOUSE.
Official album of 37 White House Press color photographs of the Inauguration of President Jimmy Carter, January 20, 1977, most 11 x 8 ¼ inches, [Washington, DC, the White House Photo Laboratory], bound in gilt blue leatherette loose leaf scrapbook stamped with the Presidential Seal.
Provenance: estate of John C. Shannon, Director of The White House Photo Laboratory.

THE OFFICIAL WHITE HOUSE RECORD OF THE VERY FIRST DAY OF THE CARTER ADMINISTRATION. The album presents the step by step progression of Mr. Carter from private citizen to the leader of the most powerful nation in the free world. The Carters pose with former President Gerald and Mrs. Betty Ford and former Vice President Nelson and "Happy" Rockefeller as the torch passes from one man to the next. After the President is sworn in, he and his wife march down Pennsylvania Avenue, and Vice-President Walter Mondale and Mrs. Joan Mondale wave from an open limousine. The Carters are shown dancing at the Inaugural Ball. On the occasion of Shannon's retirement as Director of the White House Photography Laboratory in 1989 he was presented with several albums and individual photographs documenting his long career; the present is thought to be one of only two copies, the other made for President Carter himself.
