Bricker's 1944 vice presidential campaign.  Bricker served as a U.S. Senator and Governor of Ohio in addition to his bid for the White House on the bottom of the Thomas E. Dewey ticket.
The exhibit is open through November and will be highlighted during the Republican National Convention on July 18-21 in Cleveland.
