Interviews With White House Staff

THE CALLIGRAPHER’S OFFICE

This office is located in the East Wing of the White House, traditionally the area of the complex reserved for the First Lady and her staff. In this segment, a small staff prepares invitations, placards, citations, and White House awards the old fashioned way – by hand. We talk with them about the methods they still use as they work on a myriad of projects ranging from an upcoming state visit to an individual award being worked on by a long time calligrapher – with an interesting family history at the White House.
