Dwight D. Eisenhower was the 34th President of the United States (b. 1890, d. 1969). It was General Eisenhower, the supreme commander who led the allies to victory in Europe during the second World War, that Americans elected President in 1952. With the campaign slogan "I Like Ike", he survived two terms in office as the decent, honorable man with the sunny smile that never lost the bipartisan trust of the people. Artifacts include an American League baseball pass, a fishing net and wading boots as well as a specially weighted shoe which allowed him to exercise after suffering a heart attack.
