In honor of Presidents’ Day in the U.S., I thought it might interest our readers to see what a typical day can be like for a president. The schedule full of meetings, appointments, conferences, and responsibilities is extensive.
For example, on Friday, June 20, 1947, President Harry Truman had 13 meetings and spoke to more than 100 people. On Thursday, June 20, 1957, President Dwight Eisenhower had a 12-hour day that also included meeting with close to 100 people.
Unfortunately, not all former presidents have their daily appointment schedules online. However, it’s fun to check out Truman’s and
Eishenhower’s. See what happened on your birthday, the day you graduated high school, or the day your parents were married. Could you handle continuous meetings, appointments, conferences, and the responsibilities of a presidential schedule for four years or eight?
