Description

Chinese President Jiang Zemin and his wife Wang Yeping are presented with gifts by President Wilburn at the Governor's Palace. Jiang's visit to Colonial Williamsburg came with national attention. He took a short tour of the town before meeting with a Colonial Williamsburg interpreter, Bill Barker, who portrayed Thomas Jefferson, one of Jiang's favorite Americans to quote. After the tour, Jiang and his wife were entertained by a harpsichord recital of Telemann and Handel. This photograph was taken after Jiang had donned the colonial three cornered hat presented to him. Jiang's short visit came as part of his first official diplomatic visit to the United States as President of China.
