The Presidency and the American Imagination

At Central Michigan University, the Clarke Historical Library has launched a new exhibit titled The Presidency and the American Imagination. As a CMU librarian, I must say I have enjoyed seeing this exhibit go up. I have made many suggestions to Frank Boles who is the Director of the Clarke. This is a nice exhibit and I hope those of you in Michigan can come and visit it. The playing of past presidential campaign commercials is a real plus. I think I might vote for Stevenson this year...

The event schedule for this display can be found at http://clarke.cmich.edu/Presidential%20Display.pdf. I hope to attend all of these if my child care arrangements work out.

From the site:

All of these presentations will take place at 7:00 p.m. in the Park Library Auditorium on the campus of Central Michigan University.

Following each presentation there will be a reception in the Clarke Historical Library where attendees can explore "The Presidency and the American Imagination," the Library’s current exhibit.

These events are free and open to the public. We hope to see you there!

Yes, I agree with Michael. It's a great exhibit. They had a great display of "campaign" biographies and a nice tribute display to Gerald Ford, the only president Michigan can "claim."
