Itinerary Scheduling and Interests

Give careful attention to scheduling the itineraries of spouses of guests, especially those of foreign guests. After determining their interests insofar as possible, plan:
  • Sightseeing trips to view places of historic interest, scenery, or whatever the local area best affords.
  • Shopping tours, provided that excellent stores offering American-made products are available. These may include fashion shows.
  • Ladies luncheons. When the dignitary is a man and is given a stag luncheon, his wife should be given a luncheon by her hostess or by another high-ranking official's wife. If it is a foreign wife, not only American official's wives should attend, but also notable local citizenry including those of the same national origin as the guest, and wives of consular officials in the area, etc., could be invited.
  • Teas hosted by one or several wives to honor the visitor and her companions.
