On December 21, 1970, Elvis Presley paid a visit to President Richard M. Nixon at the White House in Washington, D.C.
The meeting was initiated by Presley, who showed up to the White House gates and wrote Nixon a six-page letter requesting a visit and suggesting that he be made a “Federal Agent-at-Large” in the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs
These materials chronicling the Presley-Nixon meeting were obtained from the Nixon Presidential Materials Project at the National Archives at College Park (College Park, Maryland).
Some of the highlights of the meeting and documents...Elvis thought The Beatles were bad for America.
A list of his private phone numbers and his Washington D.C. Hotel number under the name Jon Burrows, that Elvis provided to President Nixon.
Plus Elvis gave the president a Colt .45 handgun as a gift. (How did that get past security)
