The Queen Mary is proud to host the traveling exhibit, “Bob Hope: An American Treasure,” created in partnership with the Bob & Dolores Hope Foundation and the World Golf Hall of Fame.
The 2,200-square-foot exhibit IS NOW OPEN on the ship where Hope performed his first wartime routine on the day World War II began.
“Bob Hope: An American Treasure,” includes reproductions of more than 200 vintage photos, seven videos and more than 170 items. These include an original vaudeville contract from 1922; his Ellis Island medal; the final set of golf clubs used in his life; Emmy and Honorary Oscar awards; an outfit he wore during USO tours; gifts and awards from Presidents and other celebrities; his Congressional Gold Medal awarded by President John F. Kennedy; and his "Honorary Veteran Citation" from Congress, which he called the most important honor of his life.
The exhibit tells Hope’s story through 15 themed displays that span his 100-year life. They celebrate his comedic contributions; achievements in entertainment; relationships with 11 U.S. Presidents; and enduring passion – golf. They also trace the Hope family's arrival at Ellis Island; their lives as immigrants in Cleveland; Bob Hope’s effort to strike it big in New York, which led him to a successful career and family life in Hollywood; and how a love for the military and golf took him around the world.
“Bob Hope: An American Treasure,” runs Aug. 9 through Jan. 2015 in the Timeline area of the ‘Queen Mary Story’ tour.

This monographic exhibition presents 124 iconic black-and-white photographs by one of Germany's most distinguished photojournalists, Barbara Klemm. Taken while on assignment for newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Klemm’s photos capture forty years of cultural, social, and political history in the formerly divided nation, creating icons of contemporary European history.
Talkin’ ‘Bout My Generation is an installation designed to engage students in a cross-campus interdisciplinary Photovoice project. The project uses Barbara Klemm’s generation defining images to begin a discussion through photographs and narratives on how Millennials (people born from the late 1980s to the early2000s) characterize their own generation. Since a majority of current college students fall within the Millennial Generation the project connects directly to students at CSULB.
