Biography from Artifacts

Compelling exhibits make visitors—and clients—happy. The traveling exhibit Eisterhold designed for the 1984 centennial of President Harry S. Truman’s birth was so well-received that in 2002, when his presidential museum and library wanted a permanent exhibit, they called us again. The 1984 exhibit was the first comprehensive look at Truman’s life, and in the process we not only reviewed all known photos, films and holdings in collections all over the U.S., we developed a taxonomy of Truman’s life that library staff still use today.
