BOX 1-22 White House Press Corps, 1929-2012
Material related to Thomas’s tenure in the White House press corps. The series primarily consists of programs, invitations, press releases, and printed matter collected by Thomas in the course of her work. Initially, Thomas covered “women’s news” and focused on first ladies, first families, and social events. This is reflected by numerous files related to White House events and the weddings and children of Luci and Lynda Johnson and Tricia Nixon, for whom Thomas threw a bridal shower. Material from later in her career often includes itineraries and briefings from international trips taken by presidents and press releases from White House press secretaries, some of which bear notes written by Thomas. Articles, tear sheets, and notebooks are also found in this series, as is an extensive file of Thomas’s press passes. Of particular note are files concerning Martha Mitchell, which include a book outline and other writings by Thomas. Correspondence sent to Mitchell, care of Thomas, is located in the Correspondence series. Photographs associated with presidents and first ladies are located in the Personal File, and additional articles authored by Thomas are held in the Writings series.
Printed matter, press passes, clippings, notes, and articles.
