This Just In (literally!)

Just time for the final day of the 2016 RNC, the museum received a donation of an usher’s ticket that was used at the 1900 Republican National Convention (the one at which William McKinley and Theodore Roosevelt were nominated). The ticket is signed by Sergeant-at-Arms, G.N. Wiswell. It was used by Mr. Henry F Miller, who was to present it at the employees’ door. The small punch holes at the bottom left indicate that the ticket was used twice.
