Straw “boater” hats were out of style by the 1930s, but styrofoam versions still showed up as campaign props decades later. This souvenir hat is from Edward T. “Ned” Breathitt’s successful 1963 campaign for governor. In the background is a poster from Martha Layne Collins’ successful campaign for governor in 1983, the last year covered in the exhibit. Photo by Tom Eblen |
