In 1960, King Bhumibol Adulyadej returned to the United States on the first of two state tours. The royal family spent a month in the United States visiting many places in California, Colorado, Hawaii, Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. The American public was fascinated with the young royal family, and newspapers headlined their travels throughout the nation.

The highlights of their itinerary included a reception by President Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890-1969), a tour of Disneyland with Walt Disney, and musical collaborations with famous American jazz artists.
