Time Capsule, 1973-ongoing

McGovernBJK_7279SML

Twenty-two of my twenty-three McGovern badges, acquired post-election by me, aged 8 or 9, in Berkeley, CA, during the televised Watergate-hearings-and-Battle-of-the-Sexes summer of 1973. At the time, Billie Jean King lived in nearby Emeryville, CA, in the apartments known as Watergate West. Together with one very hard ball, the badges have lived in the Dunlop can for 40 years.
