Merriman Smith's book of Presidents : a White House memoir by A. Merriman Smith( Book )

2 editions published between 1972 and 1973 in English and held by 605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What the book does is describe the presidency and six presidents in very human terms-what it's like to be president, to live in the White House, to "belong" to the first family either by birth or by duty. Here the son of a great reporter compiles the best of his father's writings, half from unpublished notes and half from Smith's famous writings, such as the book Thank You, Mr. President, and his Pulitzer Prize coverage of the John Kennedy assassination. The book includes story, tragedy, and humor -- Dust jacket

Confidential secretary : Ann Whitman's 20 years with Eisenhower and Rockefeller by Robert J Donovan( Book )

5 editions published in 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

President Eisenhower, for whom she worked throughout his two terms, called her ``the world's finest secretary,'' and the record of Whitman's extraordinary devotion to him unfolds here. Although she later became chief of staff to Vice-President Rockefeller the first woman to hold such a position and remained his friend afterward, Eisenhower, according to Donovan, ``was the towering figure in her life.'' Whitman's punishing work schedule, which often excluded social life, probably contributed to her divorce from her New York-based husband; compensation came in her power-broker role. In interviews with Donovan, Whitman recalls that visitors to the Oval Office had to ``take an end run'' around her. A woman attracted to power and closely affiliated with two of the most influential men of our time is instructively drawn by Donovan, former head of the Washington bureau of the New York Herald Tribune
