Marketing the Presidency — Wednesday, November 15 @ 1:30pm


A James Monroe snuff box promoting the Monroe Doctrine; a Teddy Roosevelt cast iron door stop; an Eisenhower bar of soap with Ike’s image on it and the words “Clean Up With Ike”; a Richard Nixon shower head where the water comes squirting out of his mouth.

Presidential candidates have been ‘marketing” themselves for many years. Artifacts are created to keep the candidate’s name in front of the public. Join Steve Mihaly, a recently retired VP of the H.J. Heinz Company and a 50+ year collector of Political Americana, as he shares 300 items from his personal collection and the historical significance behind these items.

This program is free and open to the public.
