A Retrospective: Time in Office: Presidential Timepieces

A Retrospective: Time in Office: Presidential Timepieces
George Washington made frequent use of the clockworks analogy in describing the operation of the American political and military structure. Presidents since have always recognized that their “time in office” is limited; either to the political will of the people or through constitutional limitations. So, how did these leaders mark that time? In 2008 the National Watch & Clock Museum hosted an exhibit: Time in Office: An Exhibit of Presidential Timepieces that through the inclusion of objects from several of America’s Presidents, explored Presidents’ attitudes towards time and the significant events that occurred during their “time in office.” This webinar will highlight the pieces and presidents featured in this past exhibit.
