Description This 3.5-inch by 6.5-inch postcard was used to promote Jimmy Carter for president. The front is green and features a black and white photo of Carter, roughly three inches wide by four inches tall, wearing a work shirt with loosened collar and rolled-up sleeves, resting his arms on a weathered board fence. Below the photo are these words in bold, white print, all in capital letters, "Vote for / Jimmy Carter / Democrat / for President."
The back of the postcard has a line dividing the message section from the address section. Centered at the top of the message section, it reads "Help Jimmy Carter help America / Vote for him for President," all in bold, capital letters. Centered across the bottom in small print, it reads, "Paid for by the Jimmy Carter Presidential Campaign Committee, R. J. Lipshultz, Treasurer. / P.O.Box 1976, Atlanta, Georgia 30301." At the bottom-left corner is a trademark that is not very legible but seems to read, "Allied Printing / Trademark / Union Label / Atlanta" within a ovoid trademark shape.
Notes James Earl "Jimmy" Carter, Jr. was the 39th President of the United States and was the recipient of the 2002 Nobel Peace Prize. Before he became President, Carter served as a U.S. Naval officer, was a peanut farmer, served two terms as a Georgia State Senator and one as the Governor of Georgia.
