The White House Office serves the President in the performance of the many detailed activities incident to his immediate office.

ESTABLISHMENT

On September 8, 1939, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed an order that established the divisions of the Executive Office of the President and defined their functions and duties. The National Archives published Executive Order No. 8248 in the Federal Register (4 FR 3864) 4 days later. The President's order established the White House Office as one of five divisions within the Executive Office. It also defined the Office's duties and functions as "to serve the President in an intimate capacity in the performance of the many detailed activities incident to his immediate office."
