1/8 x 3/4 in. diameter button; 1 1/8 x 1/2 x 1/8 in. key
A white pinback campaign button pierced at the bottom with a small metal key hanging from a link. A visual play on words, it reads in blue "For President/ Will-" and the dangling key finishes the name "Willkie". Wendell Lewis Willkie (1892-1944) was a Republican candidate for president of the United States, 1940, in an unsuccessful run against FDR.
Gift of Bella C. Landauer
