A Heartbeat Away: The American Vice-Presidency

August 9, 2023 - June 9, 2024

This original temporary exhibit honors the 50th anniversary of Gerald R. Ford’s Vice-Presidency. With Ford as a starting point, the exhibit explores the history of the office from the nation’s founding to the present moment. Using historic artifacts including head of state gifts, campaign memorabilia, and personal materials, the exhibit highlights the stories and experiences of specific Vice Presidents, focusing on those who—like Ford—unexpectedly rose to the Presidency.
