George McGovern grew up in Mitchell, South Dakota. He would go on to serve his state and country as a U.S. Representative, Senator, and his party's presidential nominee of 1972. This digital collection from the archives of the George and Eleanor McGovern Library brings together over 130 images that document his life and achievements. Items here include photographs of McGovern dedicating the Big Bend Dam, campaign buttons from his presidential campaign, and several images of him meeting with Sioux tribal leaders. Visitors can perform an advanced search on the items here, or look through some of the additional collections included. The site will be particularly useful to students of American presidential history and those with an interest in the political culture of South Dakota.
