Presidential Campaign Memorabilia Talk Rescheduled for Nov. 26


Red, white and blue, stars and stripes, promotions and promises. All of these are found on the materials produced to promote political candidates. Some of the most interesting, humorous and collectible of these items are the ones created every four years for presidential campaigns.

Haddonfield attorney and historian Joseph E. Murphy will explore this aspect of the political landscape with his talk “Presidential Campaigns through the Years: Having a Little Fun with Politics and History.” He will speak at 11 a.m. Nov. 26 in the Blackwood Campus Library of Camden County College. His presentation is rescheduled from its original October date due to Superstorm Sandy.

Murphy’s talk will address topics such as how today’s presidential campaigns are actually less negative than they were in the past. The presentation will be given amid his extensive collection of campaign memorabilia, which has been on display in the library throughout election season. More information about the speaker is available online at

“Presidential Campaigns through the Years: Having a Little Fun with Politics and History” will take place on the first floor of the Blackwood Campus Library. The campus is located at College Drive and Peter Cheeseman Road in Gloucester Township.

Admission to the event is free. It is open to members of both the College and local communities.
