White House History
White House History is a semi-annual periodical published by the White House Historical Association, a private, non-profit organization whose mission is to enhance the public's understanding, appreciation, and enjoyment of the White House, the official home and principal workplace of the President of the United States.
White House History features articles on the White House, especially those relating to the house's use and life as lived there. Articles are formally documented in notes, where it is appropriate. White House History is not a political forum, although political history may very likely play a part in the subject matter.
White House History serves a readership including historians, professionals and lay people in the areas of political history, architecture and decorative arts.
