National Constitution Center:Dec 22, 2014It's the anniversary of the most unusual White House summit ever: Richard Nixon and ELVIS PRESLEY. Did you know more people request the Elvis Presley picture with Nixon each year from the National Archives than the Constitution? http://blog.constitutioncenter.org/2014/12/the-story-behind-the-most-famous-white-house-summit-ever/
The secret meeting was brief at the White House, and it involved a U.S. President and a King, of sorts. And even today, it generates more interest at the National Archives, in terms of image requests, than the Constitution or the Bill of Rights.
