John M. Ashbrook Late A Representative From Ohio: Memorial Addresses Delivered In Congress 1982
2 John M. Ashbrook Late A Representative From Ohio: Memorial Addresses Delivered In Congress 1982
Washington, D.C. U.S. Government Printing Office 1982 Presumed first Hard cover Fine condition 
I have seen these memorials for a couple members of the House and Senate, but this is the most contemporary. Representative John M. Ashbrook R., was a strong conservative, so much so that the 1982 Alamanac of Amderican Politics called his far right beliefs "almost a catalog of lost causes." But Ashbrook was heartily memoralized by his colleagues. The Ohioans who spoke were Clarence J. Brown, Dennis E. Eckhart, Willis D. Gradison Jr.. Tony P. Hall, Thomas N. Kindness, Delbert L. Latta, Bob McEwen, Clarence E. Miller, Michael G. Oxley, Donald J. Pease, Ralph Regula, John F. Seiberling, Bob Shamansky, Louis Stokes, Ed Weber, Chalmers P. Wylie, The Honorable John Glenn, and Haward M. Metzenbaum. The book measures 6" x 9" and is bo,ud in a handsome black cloth. The book has 96 pristine pages and no names or writing anywhere. Rep. Ashbrook died at 53.

Akron, Ohio Seiberling In Congress Committee 1970 Paper and Metal pin All items nice 
This is a grouping of John Seiberling's campaign collectibles. Seiberling, a Democrat, ran for Congress against Ayres in 1970 and not won and, but also stayed on for decades. He was also involved in the Akron Metropolitan Park System and saved Brandywine Falls from the encroachment of the Interstate highways The one that says "The Democrat who can beat Ayers" is a brochure, the other card has two sides, the bumper sticker still has its backing, and a 3" diameter button still has its pin. The white section at the bottom looks like it's a loss of p[int, but it's actually a tiny insignia for AFL-CIO. There will be moe Seiberling this week.
