Six pictorial pages are devoted to Ike’s life and military career, and past Presidents are pictured. There also is a 16-page program for the Inaugural Ball, ex.

Two invitations are present for President Reagan’s 1981 inauguration – one from the co-chairmen of the 1981 Presidential Inaugural Committee, and another from the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies.
