Respondents wrote their answers on 4x6 notecards and added them to the outline on the table top picturing souvenirs, relics, presentation pieces, and keepsakes found in the collection of the Division of Political History, National Museum of American History. An exhibit about souvenirs and an illustrated book are under development.
