This collection of Presidential Christmas Memorabilia belonging to Dr. Rom Seeley and his wife Mary has been twice featured at the White House. The collection includes not only card and gift prints, but items made of wood, pewter, sterling silver, glass, leather and even yarn. Mary Seeley is also the author of the book, Seasons Greetings from the White House: The Collection of Presidential Christmas Cards, Messages and Gifts. Over the course of four years, Mary met and interviewed many members of First Families for the book, including a number of First Ladies; she spoke with many creators of Presidential Christmas art; and she collected details from executives at Hallmark and American Greetings, as well as from newspapers, magazines and books.
