Trumbull man presents artifacts of 29th president in Canfield

CANFIELD

He may have lacked the star power of some presidents and the allure of others, but when it came to President Warren G. Harding, what you saw was what you got, a researcher and collector says.

“He was a man of his word. That says a lot to me,” said John McDonald, who has amassed a collection of Harding memorabilia and conducted research on the country’s 29th president. “He went in and made campaign promises, which most [politicians] don’t keep, but he kept his.”

During the last six years, the Trumbull County man has kept many of the former president’s belongings, including a Masonic ring given to Harding three days before his March 4, 1921, inauguration. That item jump-started his research into the one-term president.

Numerous items that make up McDonald’s collection were on display Saturday at the Canfield Historical Society Bond House, 44 W. Main St.
