William Jennings Byran and Adlai Stevenson.
This 1900 campaign walking stick was produced for supporters of William Jennings Bryan and Adlai Stevenson. Stevenson, of Illinois, was Vice President under Grover Cleveland. He was also the grandfather of the presidential candidate who later ran in 1952 and 1956 against Dwight Eisenhower. This stick was made of wood, covered with red white and blue campaign bunting and the candidate's pictures. It is a mirror image of the McKinley cane (2010.24.27).
