Franklin Delano Roosevelt campaign cane
Gift of Lou and Barbara Grumet
This wooden cane was produced for supporters of Franklin D. Roosevelt during the 1932 campaign. It is not likely that many of these were made. In comparison to other FDR canes in the Grument collection, this example is less ornamented.
Due to ongoing research, information about this object is subject to change.
