Formal Presentation at The White House,
1998.
Illinois Governor James R. Thompson
presented President George H.W. Bush with
Robert Stewart's
Display Box.  The box was
commissioned to display the handmade Bowie
knife that was also presented to Bush.  In
President Bush's thank-you letter to Stewart,
the President indicated that the box and the
knife would be kept on display outside the Oval
Office for the remainder of Bush's term.  The
box now resides in the President's personal
collection.
