Kennedy, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush administrations. Highlights include a model of Lincoln’s Springfield home made for the Bush administration, photographs of the Kennedy family celebrating their last Christmas together, and holiday videos shot from the vantage point of George W. Bush’s dog, Barney.
