Nixon meets Elvis

On 21 December 1970, Elvis Presley paid a visit to President Richard M Nixon at the White House in Washington, D.C. The meeting was initiated by Presley, who wrote Nixon a six-page letter requesting a visit with the President and suggesting that he be made a "Federal Agent-at-Large" in the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs. During this meeting at the Oval Office, Presley presented Nixon with a Colt 45 pistol, and this famous photo was taken.
