While you’re waiting for the election results…

11/06/2012


While you’re waiting for the final numbers to come in this evening, you can spend some time looking at the results and memorabilia of past presidential elections in the Virginia Historical Society’s latest online exhibition, Getting the message out:  Presidential Campaign Memorabilia from the Collection of Allen Frey.  Doctor Frey has assembled a chronological, visual summary of every presidential election. Photographs of more than 100 authentic historical items from his collection present a pictorial record of the personalities, themes, slogans, and issues of our nation’s elections. Every election has a page dedicated to it and includes a concise summary of the major features of the election. The exhibition also contains the Virginia electoral vote for every election.  I hope you enjoy the buttons, banners, ribbons, and other artifacts from previous presidential elections as you await the results of the 2012 election.  View Getting the message out:  Presidential Campaign Memorabilia from the Collection of Allen Frey.

Greg Hansard is the Senior Web Resources Officer at the Virginia Historical Society.
