Ground Zero bullhorn back on display at GWB Library and Museum
DALLAS (7/11/14) – The bullhorn used by President George W. Bush at Ground Zero following the attacks of Sept. 11, has been re-installed for display at the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum.
The bullhorn - which is one of about 43,000 artifacts at the GWB Library and Museum – had been on display at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum in New York since their opening on May 21, 2014. It will now be back on display in the “Responding to September 11” exhibit within the GWB Library and Museum.
During its time in New York, the GWB Library and Museum kept an empty space within the exhibit where the bullhorn was originally located to honor the significance of the artifact.
“The bullhorn is such an important piece of history and of this museum, but we are so proud to have been able to partner with this important institution to help shape a complete narrative of the events around 9/11,” said Alan Lowe the director of the GWB Library and Museum.
Adding, “I am also proud that I was able to represent the entire staff of the Bush Library and Museum at the dedication of this impressive and inspirational museum."
Located on the campus of Southern Methodist University– which is a nationally ranked private university in Dallas enrolling nearly 11,000 undergraduate and graduate students from throughout the world in seven degree-granting schools – the facility is the 13th Presidential Library administered by the National Archives and Records Administration.
