Presidential Campaign Memorabilia on DocsTeach

Share historical campaign memorabilia with your students on our new DocsTeach Election Collection page!

Campaign ButtonsWe’ve assembled a wide variety of documents, photographs, artifacts and other historical items from the holdings of our Presidential Libraries — our Election Collection.

Topics highlight political memorabilia from Presidential campaigns from the 1850s through the 1990s. Check out posters, fashion, buttons & jewelry, food & drink, and more at: www.docsteach.org/topics/election

In honor of Election Tuesday, we’ll publish a new Election Collection theme every Tuesday until the Presidential election on November 8th. You can also follow along — and even share your own quirky, cool, and surprising historic memorabilia on Instagram or another social platform — in our #ElectionCollection Challenge.

These pieces of campaign history come from the collections of the Herbert Hoover, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman, Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald R. Ford, Ronald Reagan, and William J. Clinton Presidential Libraries.
