Looking Sharp: Political Knives Stand the Test of Time | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Political campaign items come in many sizes, shapes and types. While a lot of them such as buttons, pamphlets and posters are used for a short time, and in many cases discarded, some items are meant to keep.

In Lilli Vincenz’s papers, a trove of gay rights history

In Lilli Vincenz’s papers, a trove of gay rights history | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

History is written by the victors, but also by the scrapbookers, the collectors, the keepers, the pack rats. By those who show up, at the beginnings of things and with the right technology. History sometimes comes in pieces. It needs to be reassembled. Pasted and coaxed. Sometimes the finished product still has holes.


In one corner of the climate-controlled manuscript division, on a series of otherwise empty shelves, sits Lilli Vincenz’s unprocessed collection. ...


Twelve boxes. Cream-colored. Heavy. Inside: meticulous fragments of the gay rights movement of the latter half of the 20th century. Political pamphlets, sociological surveys, photographs and obituaries. Diaries of a young woman who was nervous about going into her first gay bar but whose Arlington living room later became the default place for gay women to feel at home.

My Big Bulletin Board Of Stuff | Collectors Quest | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it
A child of the 60's and a product of the 80's, I never quite outgrew my love of pinback buttons and political/social propoganda. A few snapshots and closeups of some of my favorite buttons and bumper stickers.
Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

A fabulous collection of cultural and political ephemera.

Burroughs Machine for Vote Tabulation | National Museum of American History

Burroughs Machine for Vote Tabulation | National Museum of American History | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

In 1932 Hans Jurgensen, who had been active in Democratic Party politics in Queens, New York, was appointed a tally clerk for the United States House of Representatives. He and his assistants kept records on how individual members voted on roll call votes for publication in The Congressional Record. They stamped the information by hand, making about 500,000 registrations per year. Jurgensen concluded that a machine could do the work more efficiently, and ordered this modified bookkeeping machine from the Burroughs Adding Machine Company of Detroit.

While one doesn’t normally think of Native Americans as Odd Fellows members, apparently it was a popular custom item in this area, anyway, for Native Americans to wear and display all honors.
