Presidents and Candidates on Campus: A Short History
Presidents, candidates, and politicians of all stripes have visited the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign to solicit student votes, speak on pressing topics, or hold photo-ops. History Professor Nathan Tye (University of Nebraska Kearney) will begin his talk by discussing Abraham Lincoln’s days as a local attorney prior to the University’s founding. Professor Tye will also highlight campus visits by U.S. presidents, presidential candidates, and other political figures. This event is connected to our current exhibit, Debates, Decisions, Demands: Objects of Campaigns and Activism, https://www.spurlock.illinois.edu/exhibits/profiles/debates-decisions-demands.html which was guest-curated by Professor Tye.
