Christmas Memories: It's a Wonderful Life!


As part of its annual tradition, The Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum presented its seasonal holiday exhibit titled Christmas Memories: It's a Wonderful Life! from November 17, 2007 through January 2, 2008.

The display featured over 20 decorated trees that reflected different elements of the flim. One tree was covered in trading card and collectible paraphernalia from the film. Another featured the theme of "World Travel," something George Bailey dreamed of accomplishing.

Among the many images and artifacts, visitors were treated to views of correspondence between Donna Reed and Violet Lindsay, her life-long pen pal, and the invitation that Frank Capra sent to Donna for the movie's first screening.
