“You’ll Never Walk Alone: The Public and Private Life of Bob Dole”
The Dole Institute has a traveling exhibit available for loan to area historical societies, museums, libraries and other educational institutions. The exhibit “You’ll Never Walk Alone: the Public and Private Life of Bob Dole” was designed and developed by Jamin Leigh Dreasher, former Dole Archive intern and master’s degree student in Museum Studies at the University of Kansas. Through text and images, the exhibit tells the public and private story of Senator Dole’s life including information about his close family ties, college years, military service in World War II and wounding in Italy. Visitors to the exhibit will learn about the many challenges Dole faced during recovery and a 39-month hospitalization, the many contributions he made during his 35 years of service in Congress, and his vice presidential and presidential bids.

The exhibit includes 19 Sintra panels [3’x 4’ each], and 5 nearly-life-size cutouts as well as a five minute video showing clips from Dole’s life and career. Panels can be displayed in whole or in part depending upon the size of the exhibition space.
There is no charge to borrow the exhibit, but borrowers are responsible for pick up from and return of the exhibit to the Dole Institute. Panels can be adhered to a fabric wall for display (as in the picture) or mounted on easels which are also available for rental from the Dole Institute. Exhibition loans usually last 2-3 months.
