Calling Cards

One of the items that has long fascinated me as a history teacher is how great people got started and what motivated them.  Watching Obama today it is not forgotten that he lost a House race by 31 percentage points two years before he became a US Senator.  Even in that latter campaign, Obama held a fundraiser to which no one came.  How many would take that as a sign to give up?

With that in mind one of the tools I have used a great deal are primary documents.  Here are some interesting ones of now famous Americans, many of them before they became such.  Perhaps an interesting exercise would be to have students create ones for people as they were up and coming. What would be on those business cards - having seen these.  I found these from a G+ post from Guy Kawasaki.
