Title: Collection on the commemoration of the 200th anniversary of George Washington's inauguration

Abstract: The collection holds a set of documents compiled by the New York City Commission on the Bicentennial of the Constitution, which, as one of its activities, organized the commemoration of the 200th anniversary of George Washington's inauguration. The contents are primarily publicity material and ephemera: press kit; event invitations, tickets, programs, brochures, and scripts; and pins and other memorabilia. There are also 5 pieces written for the Commission by historian Richard B. Bernstein that provide historical context to Washington's inauguration and the celebration of it.
