ELVIS LIVES (In Somebody's World, But Not Mine)
The Oval Office
White House Photo Office Roll # 5364
Oliver F. Atkins
December 21, 1970
On December 21, 1970, Elvis Presley paid a visit to President Richard M. Nixon at the White House in Washington, D.C. The meeting was initiated by Presley, who wrote Nixon a six-page letter requesting a visit with the President and suggesting that he be made a "Federal Agent-at-Large" in the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs.
I worked with a guy who had tickets to see Elvis perform in Portland, Maine — the day after he died, of a drug overdose.
I never liked Elvis that much, but he shared the same birthday (today) as my mom — and I love her.
Happy Birthday, Moms!
