Abstract

This hand-hewn, pine wood podium was used at the Plains Depot Campaign Headquarters of President Jimmy Carter. The podium is in several newspaper and print features from 1976, including his first press conference from Main Street in Plains after winning the office. The podium today is on display at the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site at the Plains High School exhibit. The podium was a poignant symbol of the small-town values of President Carter and was a salvaged pulpit from a church in nearby Douglasville, Georgia. Historic graffiti from the campaign era is faintly etched on the surface, and a piece of chewing gum can still be found tucked under the ledge. The podium was documented using structured light 3D scanning in combination with photogrammetry texture mapping. The background image used from the AP Wire Service Photo-November 4, 1976. Shown in the photo are President-Elect Jimmy Carter, Vice President-Elect Walter Mondale and wife Joan Mondale, First Lady Rosalynn Carter, and family.
