During the residency of President Kennedy, I was invited to join a group of historians who were invited to tour the White House. Mrs. Kennedy was in the midst of her massive changes to the mansion, but the day before our arrival, she had returned the RESOLUTE DESK to the Oval Office. There was a great deal of excitement over this event, and our group felt the enthusiasm and excitement about this event. The photograph of President Kennedy’s son John playing around the desk is a real part of American photographic history. I had no idea there is a second RESOLUTE DESK in Windsor Castle. I am always interested in links which tie the United States of America and the United Kingdom, and the RESOLUTE DESK is one of the most interesting. I have gathered a few articles and photographs which I will put together for your enjoyment. I have enjoyed finding all these bits and pieces.
