Barack Obama Election and Inauguration Collection, 2008-2009

Collection of various copies of newspapers, clippings, magazines and other ephemera documenting Barack Obama's 2008 United States presidential election victory and his inauguration held on Jan. 20, 2009. Much of the collection is iconic in origin or features many images of Barack Obama's campaign, election, and inauguration. Given that many of the collection items are newspapers or clippings, there is news coverage of election night and Obama's inauguration, but also extensive stories detailing Obama and his family's background, President George W. Bush's last days in office, and news of John McCain's presidential election run
