Storyline

WWII brings changes to the White House, including Russians as guests. Mrs. Roosevelt brings Maggie back to supervise the visit of Mrs. Chiang Kai-Shek. After all the Roosevelt years, the staff has trouble adjusting to President & Mrs. Truman. The lack of a foundation finally makes the White House unsafe to live in and the Trumans let most of the staff go, but call Lillian back to organize temporary Presidential residence Blair House. The Eisenhowers' lack of respect for Presidential tradition irritates the staff, and Mrs. Eisenhower's demand for new items keeps Lillian hopping. Written by mama.sylvia
