Product Overview

This book tells the history of the famous Jefferson Islands Club, called the "Playground of Presidents," which was the private island retreat for Presidents including Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman as well as many Senators and Congressmen. Stories about events at the Club are told by historian Jefferson Glassie, who grew up spending weekends at the Club on St. Catherine's Island in the Potomac River near Washington, DC, and later worked there as manager and has served on the Board for nearly thirty years. With many humorous anecdotes and comments, Glassie recounts the history of both Poplar Islands where the Club was initially located and St. Catherine's Island, mixing in tales of politicians and watermen, along with the hamr caused by erosion and the gradual degradation of the health of the Bay. With photographs.
