Desktop Items (John H. Glenn Archives Artifacts)
The Desktop Items Category consists of ninety-six artifacts arranged into the sub-categories of Annie Glenn, Corporate, Military, NASA, Post-Senate, and Senate. The category contains an assortment of nameplates, clocks, paperweights, ashtrays, pens, letter openers, flags sets, and other types of small items normally designed for use on an office desk. Presented to or acquired by John Glenn from the 1950s to 2012, most of these artifacts commemorate an event, policy issue, or entity of special interest to Glenn. Glenn's Senate office used or displayed many of these small artifacts.
