William Jennings Bryan.
Gallery Label: 
This 1908 campaign cane of William Jennings Bryan features a typical pewter head of the candidate, who was running for the presidency for the third time. The head shows an older looking candidate than the 1896 cane, with the wavy hair replaced by a balding man. This cane is much rarer than the plentifully produced 1896 cane.
