Baylor University Poage Library

Race for the White House


The opening reception for the Race for the White House exhibit was held on Thursday, Sept. 20. More than 100 guests attended. Hot dogs, hot apple pie and hot popcorn were served to complement the political campaign theme. A special thanks again to Dr. Bob Platt, Ben Guttery and George Meyer who collected most of the political items in the exhibit, and to the Dowdy Foundation for funding the purchase of materials for the library. We are most thankful for Beth Hair who curated the exhibit.
