COLUMBUS, OHIO – In recognition of the United States presidential election of 2016, the Ohio Statehouse Museum Education Center, in partnership with the American Political Items Collectors, will showcase treasures from the political careers of Ohio’s eight presidents and their campaigns.

 

While the campaign button is the most recognized and widely collected of all campaign objects, the exhibit also includes rare vintage political ribbons, ferrotypes, glassware, autographs, books, textiles, ephemera, posters, medals, tokens, postcards, pennants, sheet music and photography. Campaign artifacts range from matchbooks to street banners and everything in between!

 

“Ohio has long played an import role in presidential politics. Every four years presidential campaigns crisscross the Buckeye State and thrust Ohio into the national spotlight. This is an opportunity to see the campaigns materials that made Ohio the ‘Mother of Presidents,’” said Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board Executive Director Laura P. Clemens. The exhibit is located in the south hallway (State Street entrance) of the Ohio Statehouse and will be on display through September 30, 2016.    

 

Ohio’s Presidents include: William Henry Harrison (1841), Ulysses S. Grant (1869-1877), Rutherford B. Hayes (1877-1881), James A. Garfield (1881), Benjamin Harrison (1889-1893), William McKinley (1897-1901), William Howard Taft (1909-1913) and Warren G. Harding (1921-1923).

 

The American Political Items Collectors (APIC) is a non-profit membership organization dedicated to promoting the collection, preservation and study of materials relating to political campaigns and the U.S. presidency.  Founded in 1945, the APIC serves a growing hobby.  Membership includes collectors and enthusiasts from all walks of life and nearly every occupation.  The APIC cooperates with the Smithsonian, presidential libraries, homes, birthplaces and museums, national and local media as well as colleges and universities to facilitate the understanding of American politics using the artifacts of political campaigns.  For more information about the American Political Items Collectors, visit www.apic.us.
