Another presidential election year is here. And W. R. Poage is proud to celebrate it with a look back at many of the historical elections of the past.

The Race for the White House exhibit features many items from our different presidential collections, such as campaign buttons, posters and 3-D materials. Most of the items come from the Ben Guttery Campaign Button Collection, the George Meyer LBJ Collection and the Platt Dowdy Presidential Memorabilia Collection.

Exhibit curator, Beth Hair, and the staff of the W. R. Poage Library have enjoyed putting this exhibit together and are excited for visitors to see it.

Race for the White House runs from August-November 2012 and is open 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday thru Friday. It will be open the Saturday of Baylor Homecoming (Nov. 3) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
