    Seeking Photo of Serbian flag flying on White House, July 28, 1918

    Dr. Samuel J Mikolaski Newbie

      Dear Sir or Ms:

       

      A Librarian at the Library of Congress has referred me to NARA. Last year, the 100th anniversary of the flying of the Serbian flag over the White House was celebrated in DC led by American Serbs and members of Congress. What I believe to be an artist’s impression was circulated, and there is correspondence about contacts with President Wilson at that time about the Serbs, which I have noted. But I cannot find an original picture of that flying on July 28, 1918. The only other occasion of a foreign flag flying over the White House was that of the French flag in 1920. Do your archives have such a photo of the Serbian flag flying over the White House on July 28, 1918? If so, I would like to obtain a copy.
