President Dedicates White House Building to President Eisenhower
President George W. Bush stands for the playing of the national anthem at the dedication ceremony for the Dwight D. Eisenhowser Executive Office Building Tuesday, May 7. Formerly known as the Old Executive Office Building, it was built in the 19th Century and served as the home to the State, Navy and War departments. Currently home to White House staff, seven Presidents had offices in the building before serving as Commander-in-Chief. Of those seven Presidents, President Eisenhowser worked in the building the longest and saved the structure from demolition during his term of office in the 1950's. "His name fits this building because, as a great soldier, a great President, and a good man, Dwight D. Eisenhower served his country with distinction," said the President in his remarks.
