Merriman Smith's book of Presidents : a White House memoir

Smith, A. Merriman 1913-1970 (author.). Smith, Timothy G., (editor.). Donovan, Robert J., (writer of foreword.).

Summary: What the book does is describe the presidency and six presidents in very human terms-what it's like to be president, to live in the White House, to "belong" to the first family either by birth or by duty. Here the son of a great reporter compiles the best of his father's writings, half from unpublished notes and half from Smith's famous writings, such as the book Thank You, Mr. President, and his Pulitzer Prize coverage of the John Kennedy assassination. The book includes story, tragedy, and humor -- Dust jacket.
