A Look Back At Jimmy Carter's Inauguration

Jan 20, 2017

On Jan. 20, 1977, Jimmy Carter was sworn in as the nation's 39th president. Following the ceremony and his Inaugural Address, President Carter and his wife Rosalynn did something no other president had done before. They walked down Pennsylvania Avenue to the White House. A.D. Frazier was watching from behind the scenes. He managed Jimmy Carter’s inauguration, and talked with us about the prep work leading up to the event.


We also heard from the man who was sworn into office moments before President Carter. Former Vice President Walter Mondale shared his memories of the inauguration, and what it was like serving in the Carter Administration.
