Special Exhibit - Bob Hope: An American Treasure

August 3, 2013 - June 2, 2014
9:00 am - 5:00 pm
The National WWII Museum, 945 Magazine Street, New Orleans, LA

Presented by the World Golf Hall of Fame, Bob Hope: An American Treasure tells the story of the Guinness World Records book "most honored" entertainer through a series of 15 themed exhibit display units that celebrate his comedic contributions, achievements in entertainment, relationships with a number of US Presidents and his other passion - golf. It traces his family's arrival at Ellis Island, life as part of an immigrant family in Cleveland, his struggles to succeed in New York in entertainment, the success and family life he found in Hollywood and how golf and his love for the military took him around the world.

The traveling exhibit includes reproductions of more than 200 vintage photos, seven videos and more than 170 items including an original vaudeville contract from 1922, his Ellis Island medal, the final set of golf clubs used in his life, Emmy and Honorary Oscar awards, an outfit he wore during USO tours, gifts and awards from Presidents and other celebrities, his Congressional Gold Medal awarded by President John F. Kennedy, and his "Honorary Veteran Citation" from Congress, which he called the most important honor of his life. In addition, the exhibit includes a 30-stop audio tour and an educational program.

This exhibit is made possible through the support of the support of the Bob & Dolores Hope Foundation.
