Scope and Contents

From the Collection:

Ephemera collected by Geo. Gregory Smart related to the memory and popular image of George Washington. The collection includes postcards, calendars, cigar boxes covers, stamps and first day covers, programs for anniversary events, books and pamphlets, hat stands, billheads, stationary, cartes-de-visite, playing cards, and puzzles. Some items are catchy such as a hat stand touting the motto “friends you can hang your hat on,” while others are designed to be more educational such as grade-school primers or the story of the presidents from the makers of Planters peanuts.
