August 13, 2016 - January 8, 2017

Against the backdrop of the 2016 election, this exhibition focused on all 44 former presidents.

Political memorabilia showed how campaign materials changed over time. Every man who has held the office was represented – from Nixon’s infamous “enemies list” through to an invitation to “Laugh with Taft”.
