Experience the inside perspective and humorous White House anecdotes of Marlin Fitzwater. Fitzwater grew up in Abilene, and was on the White House staff for ten years, including six as press secretary. He was the only press secretary appointed by two presidents, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush.
The exhibit gives a glimpse of what it was like to be in the White House during historic transitions. Fitzwater was left holding the nuclear code numbers when President Reagan departed the White House for the last time. He accompanied President Bush home to Houston when he left office.
