Political Memorabilia

Political memorabilia are objects relating to political campaigns and candidates which were kept or collected because of their historical interest or the memories they evoke. They include buttons, bumper stickers, badges, and programs. RBSCP holds a vast array of political memorabilia from the 19th and 20th c. across several collections including some very interesting items that once belonged to former Governor of New York State and Republican Candidate for U.S. President, Thomas E. Dewey.
