THE HISTORY OF FOSHAY'S PARTY

LIKE IT'S 1929

 

 

Twenty-five thousand guests were invited to the grand affair, much of the guest list being cabinet members, senators and congressmen. Semi-nude dancers entertained the guests who sported gold pocketwatches as party favor gifts. 
The night of the grand opening, John Philip Sousa conducted "Foshay Tower-Washington Memorial March" in which he wrote for the occasion. The march was only played once during Foshay's lifetime. Ignominiously, Foshay's check to Sousa bounced, and in retaliation, Sousa prohibited the playing of the march. It wasn't until 1988 when a group of Minnesota investors repaid Foshay's debt to Sousa's estate that the march was permitted to be played in public again.
Designed in the image of the Washington Monument, The Foshay Tower features luxurious African mahogany woodwork, Italian marble, terrazzo and door knobs plated in gold. The ceilings are decorated in silver and gold and ornamental bronze also is placed throughout the tower.
