This Week's DC Trivia:

​According to the White House Historical Association, before the days of air conditioning, this President found the White House so unbearable in the summer that he moved his office into a tent on the southwest corner of the White House grounds at the end of the Rose Garden.  Which President: (1) Grover Cleveland; (2) Woodrow Wilson or (3) Calvin Coolidge?  

​​ANSWER:

President Woodrow Wilson found it so difficult to keep cool during the summer of 1914 that he moved his office into a tent on the southwest corner of the White House at the end of the Rose Garden. The tent, a holdover from the Theodore Roosevelt White House, was equipped with a desk, chairs, electric lights, push buttons, and a telephone.  Wilson met there with a continual flow of senators, representatives, cabinet officials, and others, including visiting Native American delegations.
