great button making story. And an artist too. 👍
Interesting set of jobs!
(mopinko) Funny!


I got involved in the Humphrey campaign while we were out of school during a school strike in Sept . I was so distraught by RFK's assassination, and the Chicago convention (did you watch?) I just didn't do any thing. I had planned to campaign for Bobby.

Finally I decided Nixon was awful and went off to volunteer.
My best memory was being on the back of a flatbed truck with a band in front. The truck festooned by us with R,W&B bunting, photos. We rode down Fifth Ave handing out flyers, and buttons.

Waaaaay later on the library computers vI did letter size posters for Presidential campaigns to put up on my nabe, and St two Universities.
Word with added drawings I did. Some were pro Dem candidate, some were anti Republican candidate.

I even did an anti Palin one. 😄
