If last night’s debate by presidential candidates Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump peaked your interest in the campaign – as it should have – you should check out an exhibit of historic campaign memorabilia at the New York Historical Society.
Campaigning for the Presidency, 1960-1972: Selections from the Museum of Democracy features more than 100 objects from four presidential elections in the 1960s and 1970s.
There are campaign buttons, paper dresses that were worn before baseball caps became fashionable, posters from Lyndon Johnson’s The Great Society campaign, a “Dancing Nixon” doll, a Nixon toilet seat, even “Gold Water” after shave.
Win or lose, the campaign memorabilia is on display through November 27, 2016.
The election for the next US President is Tuesday, Nov. 8. Here’s how to get an absentee ballot if you are traveling or would rather vote by mail than in person.
Remember, if you do not vote, you do not have the right to complain about who wins.
The New York Historical Society is at 76th St. and Central Park West.
