Scope and Contents
This collection, compiled by Dr. David Olson, documents political campaigns, both in the United States and on a global level, from the early nineteenth century to the most recent American presidential election in 2012. While elections during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries are represented, the majority of the material relates to elections held after 1960. The first series of campaign material includes pamphlets, mailings, party documents, and promotional posters. This includes an array of material from American presidential elections as well as state level elections, with North Carolina and California receiving the most attention. The second series of political ephemera includes campaign stickers, buttons, and various other items related to elections at the national, state, and local levels.
