    Obtained from former Secret Service agent Floyd M. Boring.  Provenance established by a 1983 letter from Boring on Secret Service Association veterans letterhead.  Boring goes on to reminisce a bit about Ike, whom he "respected a great deal," even if the President "had a hard time holding his temper if his golf game was interrupted by a telephone call."
