January 27: Tour of private political memorabilia collection

Updated January 27: We had a great evening, thanks to Scott and to his colleagues.  Photos from the evening are below.


 

With objects dating to 1844, Scott Ferson has the largest collection of displayed American political posters outside the Smithsonian, and he also has an extensive collection of Ted Kennedy memorabilia.  (Scott worked as press secretary for the Senator.)  On Wednesday night he’ll open his collection to us at the office of his firm, the Liberty Square Group. (See directions below.)

You’re welcome to come any time from 5:30 – 7:30 pm.  Scott will make some remarks about his collection to the group around 6 pm and will stay with us throughout the evening.  He is also providing beverages and snacks.

Limited to 25 people.  If you’re going to attend, grab a spot now by registering below.  If you do make a reservation and later find out you can’t go, please cancel it so that the spot will be released to others.

As with all History Camp Boston monthly outings, folks on the History Camp Boston list get the first shot at the spots.  If you’re not on the list, sign up here.

Our thanks to History Camp veteran Marianna McCormick for making this happen, and to Scott for his generosity in opening his collection and hosting us next Wednesday night.
