A scrapbook of letters and other memorabilia collected by Clifford Ericson in celebration of the Bicentennial. Ericson began his scrapbook at the age of 83, in his hometown of Aurora, Illinois. He mailed letters to the White House and to all of the nation’s governors, asking them to comment on the Bicentennial and what it meant to them. Every governor, including those from U.S. territories, responded, most with a letter addressed personally to Ericson. Each response was preserved in the scrapbook, along with other Bicentennial souvenirs like postage stamps, fact sheets for each state, and stickers.
