Provenance This collection was donated by Jane Hauser Patrono in September 2014. The items were collected by the donor’s father, John Hauser, who knew President Eisenhower in Gettysburg.

Scope and Content Notes This collection is comprised of an assortment of President Dwight D. Eisenhower related political materials from the 1960s and 1970s. A few relate directly to the donor’s family (Hauser), but most do not. The collection is predominantly programs from Eisenhower-related events or dedications, a few pamphlets and photographs, and a few political bumper stickers from national elections. There is also the occasional item related to President Ronald Reagan or President Richard Nixon. This collection does not provide a wealth of information about or memorabilia from local politics or political events that Eisenhower attended.
