New in the Archives: $.50 ticket to a COH fundraiser

The Archives recently acquired this ticket to the Folks HILF Campaign, a fundraiser for the City of Hope.  Chicago was one of many cities that had chapters and auxiliaries raising funds to support City of Hope.  Then, as now,  City of Hope had a national fundraising presence.

This ticket is an example of what archivists call ephemera–an item, usually printed, with a specific and limited use.  Items like this one help us understand the variety of nationwide support City of Hope has received.
