YSU Students Installing New Exhibit On President McKinley’s Campaigns

The McKinley Birthplace Museum is proud to announce a new exhibit featuring two cases highlighting the Presidential campaigns of Niles born President William McKinley. Graduate students from Youngstown State University researched, designed and assembled the exhibits as part of their Museum Curation 2 class. The students, under the direction of Dr. Marcelle Wilson, spent four months gathering rarely seen political artifacts found in the archives. The public is invited to view the exhibit and attend an opening reception to be held on Wednesday, May 8th in the auditorium of the National McKinley Birthplace Memorial from 1-3 pm. The museum will be open for self-guided tours during the reception. Refreshments will also be provided. The students will be on hand to answer any questions regarding the new exhibit.
