Series IX: Memorabilia

A wide variety of memorabilia is contained in Series IX. Included is everything from Secret Service cufflinks to Simon's official Treasury flags. Simon was a great favorite of the political cartoonists, particularly during the energy crisis, and a number of their signed original drawings are in the series. Also interesting is the memorabilia pertaining to the move to draft Simon as a presidential candidate.
