From the Oprah website
on her visit to Memphis and Graceland:
At Graceland, Elvis Presley's home, Lisa Marie,
Elvis's daughter, and Angie Marchesi,
Graceland's archive director, led Oprah and
Gayle on a private tour. Once they were behind
the velvet ropes in the famed residence, they
got to see some of the King's preserved
possessions and rooms.
Though millions of fans have toured Graceland,
no ticket could get you into the last room on
the tour—a secret library of Elvis memorabilia.
Its very existence is so top secret that The
Oprah Show cameras were turned off to protect
the location. The room—which houses Elvis's most
personal possessions—is fireproof,
earthquake-proof and tornado-proof.
Most of the things in this room—which include
signed checks, more than 60,000 photographs, his
famous sunglasses and 88 jumpsuits—have never
even been seen by the public!
Lisa Marie says having all of her dad's things
around is comforting. "It's like a little time
capsule of the past. Nothing's changed.
