On display now through March 31 in the Elizabeth Dole Gallery and Reading Room

Senator Bob Dole’s leadership shaped Congress, our nation, and the world. See his life and legacy through your eyes by viewing our special exhibit, Landmarks in Leadership: Bob Dole’s Legacy at 100 Years.

To commemorate his 100th birthday, the Dole Archives presents never-displayed materials highlighting his landmark career. Featuring objects, manuscripts, and photographs from the Robert and Elizabeth Dole Archives and Special Collections, the exhibit tells the story of major moments in Senator Dole’s career through archival collections, such as a vintage 1968 Dole for Senate billboard, a scale model of the Dole Institute, and rocks used for the construction of the WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Thank you to our Landmark Event Sponsors AARP-Kansas and Microsoft and all our season’s supporters.
