2 REAGAN& BUSH OFFICIAL ORIGINAL PRINTS FROM 1984 DALLAS REPUBLICAN CONVENTION
2 REAGAN& BUSH OFFICIAL ORIGINAL PRINTS  FROM 1984  DALLAS REPUBLICAN CONVENTION

   WE HAVE FROM THE DON ADAIR ESTATE OUT OF DALLAS, TEXAS SEVERAL ORIGINAL POSTERS HANDED OUT AT THE 1984 REPUBLICAN CONVENTION HELD  IN AUGUST, 1984. THE 1984 REPUBLICIAN NATIONAL CONVENTION HELD IN DALLAS, TX WAS AN EXTRAVAGANZA OF THE FIRST ORDER. THERE WERE 2035 DELEGATES & ALTERNATES FROM EVERY STATE & TERITIRY IN THE UNION AS WELL AS @12,000 JOURNALISTS IN TOWN FOR THE GOP CORONATION. THE FIRST POSTER WAS COMMISSIONED EXCLUSIVELY FOR THE CONVENTION, BUT NOBODY SAW IT! THE 2ND POSTER LISTED WAS A LAST MINUTE SUBSTITUTE FOR THE ORIGINAL ONE. MR. DON ADAIR, A DALLAS COMMERCIAL ARTIST, HAD BEEN COMMISSIONED TO DESIGN THE POSTER FOLLOWING ALL THE RULES A PRESIDENTIAL POSTER SHOULD HAVE. THE PRELIMINARY DESIGN HAD BEEN APPROVED BY ALL THE NECESSARY PARTITIES AT THE CONVENTION. THE POSTER, 25 X 19in, FEATURED MULTICOLORED PORTRAITS OF THE PRESIDENT & VICE PRESIDENT  IN THE CENTER AGAINST THE BACKDROP OF THE CITY OF DALLAS & THE CONVENTION CENTER. AT THE BOTTOM CENTER, IN A 6 1/2in. SQUARE, THERE WAS AN INSERT OF THE PRESIDENT & VICE PRESIDENT SMILING & WAVING HELLO. IT WAS INDEED A MAGNIFICANT WORK OF ART AS THERE WAS NO CHALLENGE TO REAGAN & THE OUTCOME OF THE CONVENTION WAS CERTAIN FOR REAGAN. THE POSTERS WERE PRINTED & READY FOR DISTRIBUTION WITH THE CONVENTION A FEW WEEKS AWAY.


      THEN UNEXPECTEDLY, THE WHITE HOUSE TELEPHONED, & SAID THE POSTER HAS BEEN REJECTED BECAUSE OF PROTOCOL. THE INSERT HAD THE VP ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE PRESIDENT. TIME WAS SHORT, SO MR. ADAIR JUST PAINTED OUT THE PRESIDENT & VP & PUT IN THE BOTTOM BLUE SQUARE THE WORDS "GRAND OLD PARTY". THE NEW POSTER WAS PRINTED THEN & DISTRIBUTED TO THE DELEGATES & THE ORIGINAL POSTERS DID NOT SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY TILL I PURCHASED THE COMPLETE RIGHTS & MATERIAL FROM THE ARTIST ESTATE. YOU ARE BUYING 2 POSTERS ALONG WITH THE NEWSPAPER RENDITION OF WHAT HAPPENED TO THESE 2 POSTERS. IF YOU NEED ONLY ONE, LET ME KNOW. I CAN SELL MULTIPLE ISSUES OF THESE POSTERS TILL I RUN OUT. ANY QUESTIONS, LET ME KNOW.
