Mrs. Benjamin Harrison’s arrival at The White House, in 1899, brought to the position of First Lady a woman of many cultural interests. She had an appreciation of historical relics connected with history and it was her ambition to make The White House a more comfortable and stylish residence for a President, while at the same time preserving furniture, silver, glass, and china associated with its past history. Caroline Scott Harrison was particularly interested in China of past administrations as she was also an accomplished artist who especially delighted in china painting.
