View the President's Schedule

Bright, hot & humid. An 11:30 A.M. meeting with Ken D., Kathy & Fred Ryan. This was about my post President set up. We have taken offices—the top floor of a new building across the street from the Century Plaza hotel in Westwood. I was amazed to discover I’ll have a staff of 12 & Nancy will have 4. This is in addition to Secret Svc.

There was also discussion of the Presidential library which will have a groundbreaking in November.

Then lunch—alone. Nancy is at a luncheon where our friends are giving her a kitchen shower.

Some 15 G.S.A. & other Fed. employees came by for individual photos. They are out here in differing capacitys, helping set up my office for after Jan. 20, communication & facilitating at house for Secret Svc. etc.

Then later Dr. Bookman & his team to check on my allergies. Found one new one—cats.

Then a meeting with George Scharffenberger. This was a discussion of our financial set up after January 20, also the book I’m to write etc. etc.

Then at 6:40 P.M. off to the Tom Jones’es for a dinner party with our friends—some of them the same as last night & for that matter tomorrow night. The Wicks, Annenbergs, Jorgensons, Wilsons, Jimmy & Gloria Stewart, Marty Manulis, Betz Bloomingdale. A good time was had by all.
