Angie continued: “Now I know a lot of us have our own home offices now.
“And a lot of us are working from those home offices these days, to be safe at home during the virus outbreak.
“But come look at some of the technology here in Elvis’ Dad’s office.”
However, it’s when Angie pointed out a 1958 Memphis phone book that there was a surprising revelation.
The Director of Archives looked up the Presley surname in the phone book.
There she found Harold, Elvis’ cousin, and lots of other Presleys but there was no sign of the King himself.
This seems rather odd considering the singer lived in Memphis at Graceland for years.
But maybe he was retracted to stop fans constantly calling up the mansion wanting to talk to the King.

Angie also pointed out the typewriter on the desk, which was used by secretaries to communicate with fans back in the day.
Vernon’s office is located on Graceland’s 14-acre estate.
While Colonel Tom Parker was Elvis’ manager, it was The King’s father who handled his personal business.
This included overseeing the singer’s personal finances, the staff and estate of Graceland itself.
Other recent Inside Graceland videos include Angie taking fans through The King’s vinyl collection.
Elvis kept this in the TV room and loved listening to the likes of Dolly Parton and Dean Martin.
While also having a number of Christian spiritual records too.
Additionally, a video was shot in the Jungle Room, pointing out Elvis’ statue of St Francis of Assisi.
