Description This black and white campaign poster shows a photograph of David Boswell wearing a dress shirt and tie and holding two handfuls of dirt. A slogan across the top reads "Kentucky Soil touches all of us." The bottom of the poster has a black text box with white letters that says, "DAVE / BOSWELL / for Commissioner of agriculture." The lower right hand corner reads, "PAID FOR BY JOE HANCOCK, CPA TREASURER." To the right of this text is an illegible printing trademark.
Notes David Boswell, a Democrat, served in the Kentucky State House of Representatives from 1978 to 1983, and he was the Commissioner of Agriculture for the Kentucky Department of Agriculture from 1984 to 1988. He was also a member of the Kentucky State Senate, 8th District from 1991 to 2011.
This poster was donated on December 30, 1986 by Drexel Davis. Davis, a self-described "Yellow Dog" Democrat, held several elected positions in the Kentucky state government. His thirty-three years of public service prompted his interest in collecting political memorabilia.
