Truman's Balcony Ornament dimensions: 3x 2.5 inches


It would be far more architecturally correct to have a balcony up here! -- President Harry S. Truman


2014 WHITE HOUSE GIFT SHOP ANNUAL ORNAMENT: TRUMAN’S BALCONY

The 2014 White House Gift Shop’s official annual ornament honors President Harry S. Truman, thirty-third president of the United States from 1945-1953. Truman came from modest beginnings, grew up on the family farm in Independence, Missouri, and did not attend college. After high school, he worked as a time keeper, clerk, bookkeeper, farmer, then joined the National Guard. When World War I erupted, Truman volunteered for duty. Truman’s organization and leadership skills were soon recognized, and he was quickly promoted to captain in France. Despite his often shy and modest temperament, Truman captured the respect and admiration of his men, leading them successfully through heavy fighting during the Meuse-Argonne campaign. Among Truman’s accomplishments as President were ending World War II, containment of the conflict in Korea, initiating the Berlin Airlift, creation of his Fair Deal, banning racial discrimination in federal hiring practices, and desegregation of the military. Truman was not afraid of contentious or unpopular causes, one of the core traits of presidential leadership.

HISTORY OF PRESIDENT TRUMAN'S CREATION OF THE WHITE HOUSE SOUTH BALCONY

“It would be far more architecturally correct to have a balcony up here!”

President Truman spoke these words during the week of February 1946 and subsequently forged ahead to make the first change to the White House since 1872-- the replacement of the canvas canopies on the south face of the White House with the now iconic South Balcony of the White House. Truman's proposal for a balcony sparked outrage and debate in America about the mutilation of the White House. Critics abounded at Truman’s proposal to change the White House face, the first exterior change of the White House in 117 years. Members of the Commission of Fine Arts argued that the Classic Greek style of the White House would be mutilated simply to create a leisure space for the First Family. It got worse: Political cartoonists satirized the balcony project, claiming that Truman could lose the 1948 presidential election because of his proposed degradation of the White House. The Fine Arts Commission eventually agreed to the proposed balcony but only if the change was approved by the renowned architect William Adams Delano. The Commission believed that Delano would never approve Truman’s balcony. Truman argued that the addition of a balcony would provide shade for the first floor portico, avoid the need for new awnings, and would balance the south face of the White House. While Truman’s reasons were logical and aesthetically accurate, he had personal reasons for wanting a south side balcony: The view from the Oval Room was magnificent but more importantly, Truman hoped that his wife, Bess, would spend more time at the White House given a South Balcony with such a splendid view.

In small acts of vision and leadership amidst resistance, the vision and acumen is often revealed of a President or future president. Despite opposition from the Fine Arts Commission and funding from Congress uncertain, Truman forged ahead with the construction of the now quintessential South Balcony of the White House. Well known for his position that the Buck Stops with the President and given the resistance from Congress, Truman made no request to Congress for the $16,050.74 cost of constructing the South Balcony, for he paid for the balcony from his own household account. Once completed, many of those who vigorously opposed Truman’s Balcony quickly wrote to the President to say that the new balcony substantially improved the south face of the White House.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES CAPITOL

In 1791, President Washington chose the land, now the District of Columbia, as the nation’s capital. Pierre Charles L'Enfant, a French engineer, was charged to plan the new city of Washington. L'Enfant's eye was keen, for he envisioned the U.S. Capitol Building upon the brow of what was then called Jenkins' Hill -- a site that in L'Enfant's words, "A pedestal waiting for a monument." The Capitol Building, itself, was designed by Dr. William Thornton, a Scottish-trained physician. The Capitol’s length, north to south, is 751 feet 4 inches; width is 350 feet; height to the top of the Statue of Freedom is 288 feet; the dome is an elegant articulation of 8,909,200 pounds of cast iron!

Standing atop Capitol Hill at the eastern end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., construction of the U.S. Capitol Building began in 1793, and is the seat of the legislative branch of the U.S. federal government -- the Congress of the United States. On September 18, 1793, President Washington laid the cornerstone of the Capitol building-- an exemplar 19th-century neoclassical architecture that evokes the principles and ideals guiding the Founding Fathers as they developed the new republic. Congress first met in the Capitol Building on November 17, 1800

The United States Capitol building is symbolically and architecturally one of the most important architectures not only in America but also in the world. Often shown as a symbol of power, influence, authority, and gravity in times of national crises as the background of news broadcasts -- the United States Capitol building is synonymous with the legislative pulse of America. The Senate and the House of Representatives have forged the laws of our Nation in the great halls, corridors, and private rooms of the Capitol Building for more than two centuries. The Capitol building since 1793 was built, burnt, rebuilt, extended, and restored, and stands as an architectural monument of freedom and democracy for America.

Dimensions: 4.5" x 1.5" x 2" (to peak of dome)

White House Oval Office

JUST ARRIVED! FIRST ISSUE NEARLY SOLD OUT

The Oval Office

Architect Nathan C. Wyeth at the order of President William Howard Taft designed the office in 1909. Named for its distinctive oval shape, the Oval Office is part of the complex of offices that make up the West Wing of the White House. Badly damaged by a fire in 1929, the office was rebuilt by President Herbert C. Hoover. In 1934, President Franklin D. Roosevelt enlarged the West Wing and added today’s Oval Office, designed by Eric Gugler. The President uses the Oval Office as his primary place of work. It is positioned to provide easy access to his staff in the West Wing and to allow him to retire easily to the White House residence at the end of the day. The President commonly chooses the Oval Office as the backdrop for televised addresses to the nation, and countless foreign leaders have traveled to the office to meet with the President.

The Green Room

James Hoban, the original architect of the President's House, intended that the space now called the "Green Room" be used as a "Common Dining Room." Charles McKim renovated the White House for President Theodore Roosevelt in 1902. In the Green Room, the architect covered the walls in green velvet and relocated a white marble mantle from the State Dining Room. Remarkable works of art grace the Green Room walls, among them a recent acquisition, Georgia O'Keefe's "Bear Lake, New Mexico," painted in 1930.

The Red Room

The Red Room traditionally has served as a parlor or sitting room; recent Presidents have had small dinner parties here.

Yellow dominated the color scheme until 1845, when President and Mrs. Polk furnished the room with a dark crimson French Antique style suite and a ruby carpet. Soon the "Washington Parlor" became the "Red Room."
