In a break with a decades-long tradition, the Reynolds administration has changed the face of the first spouse doll. For the first time, the doll will have the face of First Spouse Kevin Reynolds, not former First Lady Billie Ray.

The display case was unveiled on Dec. 28, 1976. Reynolds will be the fifth doll added since the display’s inception.

The public is invited to attend the doll unveiling. The event will occur south of the rotunda, at the first spouse display case. Reynolds will join Capitol tour guide Joan Arnett for the event.

Details of the event are as follows:
