Bush Artifacts on Display at SMU

Bush Baseball IMG_0040The pistol taken from Saddam Hussein upon his capture in Iraq was a 9mm Glock. The bullhorn W brandished during his first visit to Ground Zero on Sept. 14, 2001, was a Fanon model. The former president autographed the baseball (photo by Jeanne Prejean) he used to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at Game 3 of the 2001 World Series.

These are just a  few of the objects you’ll see up close–and learn about–when SMU and the George W. Bush Presidential Center present a “teaser” exhibition about the fledgling center starting Saturday at SMU’s Meadows Museum. “There’s no word except ‘cool’  for some of these” artifacts, says Alan C. Lowe, director of the George W. Bush Presidential Library. The preview exhibit, intended to pump up interest in the Bush Center,  runs through Feb. 6.
