These were on exhibit at various times at the Woman's National Democratic Club, the Washington Palm Restaurant and a private home during their reception for the opening of the movie "All the President's Men." Busts were owned by Senator Sam Ervin, Senator Daniel Inouye, Sam Dash, and individual collectors.
