First Lady Betty Ford, left, and daughter Susan make Christmas decorations in the Solarium in 1975. The light-filled room has been used as a tea parlor for first ladies and was transformed into a classroom for Caroline Kennedy. President Eisenhower barbecued on a grill on the flat roof outside the Solarium. The Carter family was known to sunbathe in the room.
