From the latest Nixon document dump, the Los Angeles Times has further evidence of Richard Nixon’s bottomless boorishness.

The President’s first year in office was marked by a memo from Presidential  aide Alexander Butterfield, giving Nixon a progress report on efforts to purge the White House of past president’s photographs.

Particular focus was given to the office of Edna Rosenberg, a civil servant since the Hoover administration. Nixon had spotted two photos of John F.Kennedy in her office,  one inscribed to her by Kennedy.

Butterfield reported triumphantly that she had been forced to remove the photos, and the White House was now predecessor-free.

On January 14th,” Butterfield reported to Nixon, “the project was completed and all 35 offices displayed only your photograph.”
