Historian and Relative of 18th President Explores the Design of the White House
Some of President Grant's items are on display courtesy of Dietz at the Museum of Science of Industry's exhibition The White House: A Look Inside, which ends today. Eight Forty-Eight recently met up with Ulysses Dietz. He gave us an historic walk through the White House looking at how approaches to design and decoration have changed over the years. He says in the beginning, its sheer size made it unlike any other American home.
