MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- The man who arranged the White House meeting between Elvis Presley and President Richard Nixon is sharing his memories of how it came to happen during Elvis Week activities in Memphis.
A panel titled Elvis Insiders is set for Monday at Graceland, and the list of participants includes former Nixon aide Egil "Bud" Krogh.
The 1970 encounter produced what the National Archives says is the most requested image from its trove.
In the photo the two are shaking hands as a smiling Nixon looks at Presley while the singer, wearing one of his famous large belt buckles and a cloak, gazes toward the camera.
Elvis Week is expected to draw 75,000 fans to mark the 35th anniversary of Presley's death.
