DWIGHT DAVID EISENHOWER

(1890-1969) Thirty-fourth President of the United States (1953–1961). During the Second World War he served as Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces in Europe, with responsibility for planning and supervising the successful invasion of France and Germany in 1944-45. After the war, he served as president of Columbia University, and in 1951, he became the first supreme commander of NATO.

As President, Eisenhower drew our pencil sketch which was part of a group of four pencil sketches, three on White House "Agenda" stationery. The President dated this sketch "Mar 11, 57." Since the three other sketches in the original group of four were drawn during scheduled White House meetings, is it possible that this sketch was also drawn at the White House but not during a scheduled meeting as suggested by the informal paper Ike uses? The President had a busy morning of meetings and an evening reception at the Senate Office Building, but according to his daily schedule, he had an open afternoon. Like two of the other drawings in the group of four, this sketch may also be golf related. The sketch is rendered in pencil on a 5 1/2 x 5 3/4 inch page perforated at center.
