A 1949 refugee from Communist Czechoslovakia with nearly thirty years of U.S. government service, Mrs. Eliška Hašková Coolidge, has published her memoirs in the Czech language.

Her book includes her service on the White House Staff under five U.S. Presidents, and her ten years’ experience at the Department of State on the personal staff of the Secretary of State, as Assistant Chief of Protocol of the United States and as Alternate Delegate to the Organization of American States.
