Pages in the Media

Film and Television

Please “stay tuned” for more video clips in the coming months. Meanwhile, enjoy this video of President Reagan’s graduation remarks wishing farewell to the Capitol Page School’s Class of 1983.


The U. S. Capitol Page Alumni Association is proud to share works written by or about Pages. Those books listed in blue focus on Pages or the Page experience. Where we could identify authors as Capitol Page Alumni, we have noted their assignment and final year of service (or “graduating class” cohort). This list is simply intended to inform our alumni regarding these publications. Any interviews, vignettes, situations, characters, or ideas expressed in the following publications reflect the author’s work and opinions, and not necessarily the perspectives or opinions of the Alumni Association.

If you are an author who would like to share your titles with the Page community, please contact us with your name, book or article title, publisher, and your year(s) of service on Capitol Hill.  Similarly, please let us know if you are aware of any relevant titles that you recommend we add to our list.
