    In this photograph, taken by Eric Draper on January 21, 2001, White House Curator Betty Monkman leads a tour in the Green Room of the White House. The tour was held the day after George W. Bush was sworn-in as the 43rd President of the United States. Betty Monkman joined the White House Office of the Curator in 1967, and served there until her retirement in 2002. She became the sixth White House Curator upon the retirement of Rex Scouten in 1997. A regular contributor to the White House Historical Association's award-winning journal “White House History Quarterly,” Betty Monkman is also the author of the White House Historical Association publications “The White House: Its Historic Furnishings and First Families,” and “The Living White House.”
