The Contenders: 
Presidential Candidates NOT Selected 
Through January 2017

Pulling from the Clarke's rich collection of presidential campaign biographies, this exhibit focuses on those who vied for the office but were not elected. Each election, there is one winner and a host of others – some remembered and some not – who threw their hat in the ring only to come up short. View campaign materials including texts, ephemera, and autographs of those who have not been one of the 44 who have held the highest office in the land.
