The Sixties Project Presents:
Buttons of the Sixties
The bulk of this collection of buttons was donated by Tane Datta, who lived in Washington, DC during the Sixties and was active in the fight for high schoolstudent rights and the antiwar movement. If you have buttons you'd like to see featured in this exhibit, scan them and email me the file along with the history of the button. I prefer PICT files of the buttons scanned at actual size at 150dpi. If you have information on any of the buttons already displayed in the collection please send an email to email@example.com. Enjoy!
