This is the end of our visit with The Diplomat, but I wanted to show you some of their coverage of the Eisenhower Inaugural Balls. Everyone looked lovely!

" Arriving at the Inaugural Ball at the Armory-President and Mrs. Eisenhower with Major and Mrs. John Eisenhower. All later attended the three other balls-at the Mayflower, the Sheraton Park, and the Statler."

"...Mrs. Merriweather Post of the hostess committee, starts to the dance floor with Colonel Serge Obolensky."

"Former Ambassador Clare Booth Luce and House Minority Leader Joseph W. Martin, Jr., at the Inaugural Ball at the Mayflower Hotel."

"Arriving at the same hotel to sing for Inaugural guests is Lily Pons, wearing a stunning white tulle gown designed by Marusia."

"Vice President and Mrs. Nixon take time out for a dance at The Sheraton-Park."

"Senator and Mrs. John Kennedy of Massachusetts at the Inaugural Ball at the Sheraton -Park."
