DC TRIP: Presidents Gone Wild

More cool stuff from the Smithsonian Museum of American History - Presidential style . . . 

Harry Truman's vacation shirt

 Warren G. Harding's pajamas

Eisenhower's golf clubs

A fan given away at Babtist churches, sponsored by a mortuary

Kennedys on Mt. Rushmore? Sure, why not.

Congress commissioned this statue in 1832, to celebrate the centennial of George Washington's birth. Scultor Horatio Greenough depicted George in this wacky steam-room pose. It sat in the Capitol Rotunda, then was moved outside for a while, before being tucked away in the Smithsonian in 1908.

I think the pose is a classical reference.
