ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the opinion of various U.S. presidents regarding work in the White House's oval office. Richard Nixon said the room stifled creativity, Gerald Ford said it was too luxurious, Jimmy Carter preferred a room near his bedroom, and Ronald Reagan felt it was too formal to be relaxing. These memoirs were collected in Hugh Sidey's book, "The White House Remembered." Writing the book was one of the last things Sidey did before he died in mid-Nov. 2005.
