A fascinating collection of memorabilia associated with presidential campaigns from 1824 to 1972 is now on display on the 6th floor of E.S. Bird Library. Drawn from the artifactual collections of Syracuse University Library’s Special Collections Research Center, the exhibition of buttons, banners, bumper stickers, brochures, apparel, and other items provides a historical overview of the images and slogans candidates have used to position and advertise themselves in their quest for the White House. The exhibit is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday – Friday through January 20, 2009.
