This led to Carol's becoming the assistant manager and then manager of The Blair House, guest house for the President of the United States. In that capacity, Carol oversaw the day-to-day operations of this 115-room complex of four connecting historic houses and met regularly with heads of government, chiefs of state, ambassadors and embassy officials.
