Any day now, Richard Nixon and Herbert Hoover will arrive at David Peterson's doorstep.
At his Burbank home they'll join the likes of Abraham Lincoln, Ronald Reagan and Thomas Jefferson — most of the presidents, really, in a collection of figurines that includes nearly every U.S. presidency since George Washington.
Peterson's collection includes dolls, caricatured sculpture, and yes, even Nixon and Hoover Bobbleheads.
Though his collection of 100 or so presidential replicas grows every year, there are a few still missing.
“Millard Fillmore and John Tyler don't tend to get a lot of good press,” Peterson said.
The unusual collection started in the mid-1980s with a gift from an ex-girlfriend. Now, all Peterson's friends know him as the history buff with the army of plastic presidents. It's a collection he'll share with the whole city at the Burbank Public Library over the next two months.
