About this collection

Date Range: Circa 1940-1950

 

Louis Leppke (1879 - 1966) was an advertising executive, civic worker, amateur photographer and above all – a patriot.  His collection of “Portraits of the Presidents of the United States and their Wives” is the only complete matching set known to exist.  The collection is also unique in that each portrait depicts the Presidents and First Ladies as they went into the White House, not as they looked after they left.  Leppke was also a prominent exhibitor with the Omaha Camera Club.
