Various buttons and stickers for the 1968 Jacob Javits senatorial campaigns, some (or all?) of which were designed Jason McWhorter with art direction by Milton Glaser, according to Scott Lindberg.
New York senator Jacob Koppel “Jack” Javits, served in the United States Senate from 1957 to 1981. Javits, a liberal-minded Republican, supported monumental legislation while in the Senate, such as the 1957 Civil Rights Act and Lyndon Johnsons’ “Great Society” programs. Although he initially supported the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, by 1967, he denounced the Vietnam War, calling for a peaceful resolution. Javits served in the Senate until his 1980 loss against Democrat challenger, Alfonse D’Amato. Javits died of ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) at the age of 81 in March, 1986. — Busy Beaver Button Museum
