TOMMY G. THOMPSON COLLECTION

MEMORABILIA
GUBERNATORIAL, 1987-2001, undated


The pieces of memorabilia listed below are associated with Thompson's governorship of Wisconsin. Items are arranged chronologically by format. Some memorabilia could not be dated with any degree of precision and are therefore marked as undated (undated); however, all are believed to have entered the Governor's possession at some point during his 14-year tenure in office, or within a few months of his leaving the governorship to become U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services.

Each piece of memorabilia has been assigned a unique identification number (MU ID#) by the Department of Special Collections and University Archives. Some items were originally assigned a separate identifier by Thompson's staff before being sent to Marquette University. This original identifier appears in the Notes field.
