Marketing the Presidency

Wednesday, November 14, 6:30 – 7:30 PM

Many people think of marketing as a relatively modern term, but presidential candidates have been marketing themselves – and their ideas – since the inception of our nation. Steve Mihaly has been collecting political Americana for more than 50 years, with a collection that now encompasses more than 20,000 items!

Join Steve Mihaly as he shares some of the more whimsical items in his collection, including:

* A James Monroe snuffbox, promoting the Monroe doctrine

* A Teddy Roosevelt cast iron door stop

* An Eisenhower bar of soap, stating “Clean Up With Ike”

* A Richard Nixon shower head

Explore the oddities in his collection, while discovering why these items were produced and what their historical significance is. Advance registration is required.
