Thomas Avery Adams, Sr., white house cook

My husband has told me often of how his father, Thomas Avery Adams, Sr., was a cook in the White House. My husband and 4 of his 5 siblings were born in Washington, D.C., during the 1940's, so that is the time period. He said his father taught all of them to cook like him: greens, cornbread, steaks, roasts, hams, fried chicken, biscuits and gravies from scratch. Unfortunately, there are no stories passed down from his time spent in the White House kitchen, but it had to have been during Franklin Roosevelt's last 2 historic terms in office. He was not the Head Cook...just a member of the staff, but it must have been exciting for him to have worked there.
