“The President Requests the Pleasure” — Entertaining at the White House
with William Allman

William Allman served in the Office of the Curator of the White House for 41 years, the last 15 years as the Curator until his retirement in June 2017. The White House, while serving as home and office, also operates as an ever-evolving historic site with an important museum collection of the fine and decorative arts. The Curator’s Office is responsible for the acquisition, preservation, and interpretation of that collection, as well as assembling photographs and historical information about the house and its occupants. William, a native and resident of Bethesda, received his B.A. in history from the University of Maryland in 1974 and an M.A. in American studies with museum concentration from The George Washington University in 1982. He is the author of the 2016 edition of Official White House China From the 18th to the 21st Centuries, published by the White House Historical Association.
