Photo of Bush 41 painting at the Museum in Pensacola

I found a home for the painting. I brought the painting to RI because that was the most convenient way to get it to the Naval Aviation Museum in Florida where it needed to go.

 

Dear Mr. Collie,

Thank you again for your kind donation to the museum. I apologize for the delay in responding to your email, as I just returned to the office this morning. Attached is an image of the painting, displayed adjacent to our World War II gallery. The museum has two areas discussing the contributions of President H. W. Bush, this being the section on the first floor. The artwork is showcased on one of our tri-panel pillars in a highly visible area; the portrait of President Bush shown is displayed on another portion of that panel. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have and best wishes for a wonderful new year.

Sincerely,

Dina G. Linn
Museum Curator
National Naval Aviation Museum
1750 Radford Blvd, Suite C
Pensacola, FL 32508

Rock Stars of Holliston, and Where They Play Now

Local folklore has it that George Washington and his men stopped at Balancing Rock on Route 16 and challenged each other to tip a very heavy top rock off of its base. No doubt there was a fifer and drummer or two among the ranks of Washington’s men.

The People's House: The White House

There was no ceremony in 1792 to mark the construction of the White House, but on October 13th of that year, the building of what is today, the most ceremonial place in America began. The first President to live in the White House was John Adams of Quincy, Massachusetts. Three other sons of Massachusetts, John Quincy Adams, John F. Kennedy, and George H. W. Bush have lived there as well. Today, October 13th, we celebrate the building of the White House. The original design for the White House by French architect and civil engineer Pierre Charles L’Enfant called for it to be modelled after the Palace of Versailles, but after a six year war for Independence from England and yet another war with England thirty years later in 1812, the White House, the future home of the Presidents would, not even remotely, be based on a “palace” design.
