Support Your Candidate: Political Memorabilia
For most of the United States’ 240-year history, candidates for local and national office have used all sorts of objects, images, and symbols to promote their ideas and plans for governing. To mark the 2016 election year, the Geneva Historical Society has on display this exhibit of political memorabilia and ephemera. Included in the exhibit are buttons, fliers, signs and photographs marking the campaigns of national candidates like Dwight Eisenhower and Teddy Roosevelt, as well as some of Geneva’s 20th and 21st century mayors and council members.
Here are four of the photos featured in the exhibit: Candidates in Geneva
