Group Activity! Presidential Library Scavenger Hunt

Image credit: 

I was poking around the Reagan Library's online archives (just for kicks) when I found this photo, captioned "Princess Diana dancing with John Travolta in the entrance hall at the White House. 11/9/85." You can see the President and First Lady in the background. I found this image roughly 33 seconds into my visit, which leads me to believe there's gold in them thar hills. If you're just sitting around waiting for a research project, this one's for you—and you might win a t-shirt for your troubles.

Let's compile the coolest, weirdest, most impressive and most embarrassing photos put online by presidential libraries. Here are some links to get you started:

The Reagan Library

Clinton Presidential Library & Museum
*
Richard Nixon Library & Birthplace Foundation

We'll award free mental_floss t-shirts to the (three) readers who find the most bizarre photos. Just leave a comment with the link to the photo and a caption—an original caption or quote from the library's site. And I'll post a round-up of the best of the bunch next week. Happy hunting.
