1947 - 1979

The photographs in this series were sent or given to Mamie Doud Eisenhower over a wide span of time after World War II when she and her husband, Dwight D. Eisenhower, were already widely known. Much of the material that was sent to her involves private individuals, their children, their homes, and topics of interest to them that they wanted to share with Mamie Eisenhower. Other material features Mamie, Dwight D. Eisenhower, their relatives, and locations with connections to the Douds and Eisenhowers. These locations include the Eisenhower Farm at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania; Mamie Eisenhower’s birthplace in Boone, Iowa; and buildings at Fort Sam Houston, Texas, where the Eisenhowers had lived. Notable are photographs of some locations, facilities, and things either dedicated to or named after the Eisenhowers, as well as photographs of artwork representing Dwight and/or Mamie Eisenhower. There are photographs, both amateur and professional, of Mamie and/or Dwight with various people and visiting various places. The series also includes some photographic portraits of Mamie and Dwight Eisenhower. A significant part of the series consists of photo albums presented to Mamie. These include an album of professional and press photos of Dwight and Mamie Eisenhower; albums from the wedding of John S. D. Eisenhower and Barbara Thompson and the weddings and wedding receptions of some of the Eisenhower grandchildren; and photos from the dedication of the Eisenhower Presidential Library in Abilene, Kansas. One album contains photographs of Dwight D. Eisenhower’s funeral at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C, his casket lying in state in the Capitol Rotunda, its transport to Abilene, Kansas, for burial, and the ceremony that took place there.
