This Week's DC Trivia:

On September 7, 1977, President Jimmy Carter and First Lady Rosalynn Carter hosted a State Dinner with 18 Latin American Heads of State to mark a significant event.  Which event: (1) the completion of the Pan-American Highway; (2) the signing of the Panama Canal Treaties; or (3) the 154th Anniversary of the Monroe Doctrine? 


According to the White House Historical Association, the September 7, 1977, State Dinner was held following the signing of the two Panama Canal treaties by President Carter and Panamanian leader Brig. Gen. Omar Torrijos Herrera. The first, the Permanent Neutrality Treaty, declared the canal neutral and open to vessels of all nations. The second, the Panama Canal Treaty, provided for joint U.S.-Panama control of the canal until December 31, 1999, when Panama would take full control.
