In a way, the past 35-year quest for historic artifacts was a more mature way of simply doing what it was that I did as a small boy - organize, collect, attractively display, and give private tours.

The collection represents the lifelong passion of one man: Raleigh DeGeer Amyx. As a young man in the late 1950’s Mr. Amyx worked with the Federal Bureau of Investigation as a messenger while attending college. It was not long before his passion for American politics led him to his lifelong career as a collector. While working in our nation’s capital, Mr. Amyx came in contact with a number of people who were in the midst of changing the world. He had the good fortune to have personal interactions with J. Edgar Hoover, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Lyndon B. Johnson, and John F. Kennedy as well as many others. In fact, most of the items in his collection were given to him by close companions, families, and staff members directly connected to important historical figures.
"In a way, the past 35-year quest for historic artifacts was a more mature way of simply doing what it was that I did as a small boy - organize, collect, attractively display, and give private tours. At age 7, there was a 2 cent admission per tour to see my collection. Now, the collection is available for all. Time has a way of altering perspective," reflects Mr. Amyx.
Because of his extensive knowledge and expertise, Mr. Amyx has long been a trusted source for government and private parties in need of assistance with authentication and evaluation of historical American artifacts. His remarkable collection includes personal effects of American legends such as past US Presidents and First Ladies, athletes, and entertainers, and original artwork of world-renowned artists, as well as historical memorabilia from NASA and the Olympic Games.
Perhaps some of the most astounding pieces in The Raleigh DeGeer Amyx Collection are contained in the vast collection of White House china. Since the very first US president was elected, each president has contributed a distinguished china pattern that is associated with his presidency. The Raleigh DeGeer Amyx Collection holds the most extensive private collection of White House china in the entire world.
