Profs & Pints: Pets of the Presidents
A delightful, and sometimes strange, menagerie has inhabited the White House since its construction in 1800. Thomas Jefferson kept bear cubs and a mockingbird. John Quincy Adams kept an alligator in the East Room. Andrew Johnson entertained mice. Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelts children brought ponies into the house.

The real stars, however, have always been dogs and cats: From Ulysses Grants Newfoundland, Faithful, to FDRs Scottish Terrier, Fala, and the Siamese Cats that roamed the Executive Mansion during the Rutherford B. Hayes and Gerald Ford administrations.

Join White House historian and storyteller Edward Lengel as he chronicles the exciting--and often hilarious--history of the nation's "first pets." You'll learn how a horse named Old Whitey charmed Washington D.C., how a dog named Pete tore the pants off a French ambassador,  and how even the most skilled politicians have literally faced the risk of "stepping in it." (Tickets $10 in advance and $12 at the door.)
