The well known White House China Collector & Historian, Set Momjian, spearheaded the private fund raising for The Carter China project. However, President Jimmy Carter's 1981 White House China arrived too late for their own use in the Executive Mansion.

Although the beautiful Presidential China is Marked in Gold – "The White House – 1980 OR Jimmy Carter", this White House China was actually completed after President Jimmy Carter and First lady Roslyn Carter left The White House in 1981, for Plains, Georgia.

Therefore, almost all of their, "Official" White House China was delivered to the Carter Presidential Library, in that no public funds had been expended in the design and purchase of this Service.  However, it is believed that the Executive Mansion does have examples in their impressive White House China Collection.

Jimmy Carter - The President Who Became Famous After He Left Office

Posted by RALEIGH DEGEER AMYX on Tue, Mar 17, 2015 @ 09:30 AM

James Earl Carter, known to all as Jimmy, served as our 39th president, from 1977 to 1981. But historians agree he has made his real mark on the world as a former President of the United States.

The year after he left office, Jimmy Carter became University Distinguished Professor at Emory University in Atlanta and founded the Carter Presidential Center there. The Center, which has a sizeable staff, works internationally to promote democracy and human rights and prevent disease and hunger. But former President Jimmy Carter personally works hand-in-hand with the Center on his own numerous international efforts.

As a promoter of human rights, Carter has been a leader in providing election oversight for emerging democracies – more than 70 elections in Asia, Africa and the Americas. Archbishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa said of him, “When it comes to elections, Carter is the most listened-to voice in the world.”

President Carter has also worked with the US State Department as an unofficial ambassador or emissary to help mediate conflicts all around the world. On one of his missions, he stated, “I am not here as a public official, but as a citizen of a troubled world who finds hope in a growing consensus that the generally accepted goals of society are peace, freedom, human rights, environmental quality, alleviation of suffering, and the rule of law.”

Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn are also well-known for their volunteer efforts on behalf of Habitat for Humanity International, not just raising their voices on the organization’s behalf but hoisting hammers as well on building projects in the U.S. and abroad.

In 1999, President Bill Clinton honored both Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, America’s highest civilian honor. He noted the Carters had formed an “extraordinary partnership,” and said that “Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter have done more good for more people in more places than any other couple on the face of the earth.”

In 2002 Jimmy Carter also received the Nobel Peace Prize. The official citation noted the award was for his work leading the Camp David Accords to fruition while he was president and “for his decades of untiring effort to find peaceful solutions to international conflicts, to advance democracy and human rights and to promote economic and social development.” At the time, Jimmy Carter was the third U.S. President to have received the Nobel Peace Prize, succeeding Teddy Roosevelt in 1906 and Woodrow Wilson in 1919. Since then, President Barack Obama also received the prize, in 2009.

As if all that hasn’t kept him busy, since leaving office Jimmy Carter has authored two dozen books, including several memoirs and even one novel entitled Hornet’s Nest, for which he also painted the cover picture. He is thought to be America’s most prolific presidential author.

Perhaps the best summary of Jimmy Carter’s post-presidential life work can be found in his own words, delivered at the end of his Nobel Lecture in 2002: "The bond of our common humanity is stronger than the divisiveness of our fears and prejudices. God gives us the capacity for choice. We can choose to alleviate suffering. We can choose to work together for peace. We can make these changes – and we must."
