Warren G. Harding's pajamas, about 1921-23
President Harding wore these monogrammed silk pajamas, made by Chavert and Fils of New York and Paris, during his short term in the White House. After Harding's death in 1923, Mrs. Harding gave many of his personal effects to Colonel O. M. Baldinger, a family friend and senior presidential aide. In 1954 Baldinger presented several Harding items, including the pajamas, to the Smithsonian.
