This traveling exhibit has to the London Olympics, aboard the grand ocean liner Queen Mary, and currently resides on Ellis Island.
“Bob Hope is a transcendent figure not just in golf, but in American history,” said Jack Peter, World Golf Hall of Fame Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. “His story is so compelling that we felt it was the ideal candidate to build into our first traveling exhibition. We are honored to have the support of the Bob & Dolores Hope Foundation in this exciting venture.”
Bob Hope: An American Treasure features more than 150 artifacts, including Hope’s PGA money clip, an honorary Oscar statuette, Honorary Veterans citation, and Congressional gold medal. More than 200 vintage photos and several video displays will tell the story about Hope’s early years as part of an immigrant family in the early 20th century, his rise as a star of stage, screen and radio, the relationships he had with U.S. presidents, his devotion to the U.S. military and his love of golf.
