John Jackson talks with Murphysboro native and SIU graduate, Dr. Jerry Mileur, who recently donated his collection of political memorabilia to the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute and the University Museum, which featured the collection in an exhibit on October 9, 2008. Mileur explains that he began his collection over 30 years ago after receiving a Franklin D. Roosevelt button from the 1930s from his grandfather, Willie. As his collection grew, he began incorporating it as a teaching tool in his political science courses. Mileur adds that his collection also includes items ranging from the time of Andrew Jackson to George W. Bush.
