History Happy Hour is a weekly virtual program hosted by the White House Historical Association. Join us as experts weigh in on a variety of historical topics, share their insights, answer audience questions, and enjoy presidential-inspired libations.

This week, join Ted Hake, founder of Hake’s Americana & Collectibles, the nation’s first auction house to specialize in popular culture collectibles for a visual presentation of pinback campaign buttons since 1896 and their 19th century forerunners designed to be worn in support of presidential candidates.

The focus will highlight evolving technology and the material culture artifacts available to today’s collectors.
