Find the Presidents at Mortensen Library
The display, located on the main floor of the library, includes an object or illustration representing each of the nation's 43 presidents.
For example, the exhibit features a James Madison teapot and cup, dolls bearing the likenesses of John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson, and a figure of Bill Clinton playing the saxophone.
Edmund Sullivan, director emeritus of the museum, included his favorite piece in the display – a George Washington tankard dating from the 1790s.
The tankard (a tall, one-handled drinking vessel) honors Washington in the last years of his life, a time when he was a national icon who embodied the American spirit.
The display at Mortensen Library is not organized by date. See if you can find all 43 presidents and put them in order!
