About Platt Dowdy

Dr. Bob Platt has been a collector of political memorabilia for decades. His store in the Ft. Worth Stockyards served as a source of political materials for years.

Through the generous support of the John and JD Dowdy Foundation, John and Sarah Dowdy, and Carol Sue and Forrest Roberts, the Poage Library was able to purchase a large portion of the political memorabilia Dr. Platt so maticulously and lovingly collected over the years.
