The Nixon Years
President Nixon working
|The President had a hideaway
office in the Executive Office Building, next door to the White House,
and I was taken there to photograph him as he prepared for a television
address. He scarcely moved the entire time I was there. I kept
hoping he might answer the telephone or walk around the room, so I could
get some variety, but it didn't happen.
Later, in the Press Room, I overheard some White House correspondents commenting on how formal the President always was. One said: "I bet he takes a shower in that suit!" Another added: "If a photographer ever shot him with his feet up, it would be worth a million dollars." I smiled and kept my little secret to myself, but doubted that I'd ever see the million dollars!
