By REAGAN, RONALD)

Ca. 1985.. Lot of various ephemera: three 8 x 10 inch color prints, form letter, and printed invitation. Several items relating to the Inauguration of Ronald Reagan (with George Bush) on January 20, 1985. There are two photos, one of the Reagan Inauguration on January 20th, 1981, with Reagan taking the Oath of Office. A Certificate of Appreciation accompanies this photo. The other photo is of Reagan in the Oval Office, with a printed "thank you" below "for your generosity." Accompanying this item is a one page form letter (the second page is missing) from the National Republican Senatorial Committee dated October 14, 1985, stating the "limited edition print will serve as the model for the oil painting of the President that will hang in the white House after he leaves office." The last item is a printed invitation from the Inaugural Committee requesting "the honor of your presence to attend and participate in the Inauguration of Ronald Wilson Reagan" on January 20, 1985. Accompanying this invitation is a printed disclaimer stating that the former item is a "Commemorative Invitation" that "does not constitute admission to any of the Inaugural Events"; i.e. stay home. Also included is a Certificate of Appreciation dated October 17, 1988 with a photo in color of Reagan and wife Nancy sporting skirt with large bow and strange ruffled blouse (perhaps now in the Smithsonian.) An interesting collection of Reagan Memorabilia from his years as President of the United States. .
