James Earl "Jimmy" Carter, Jr was the 39th U.S. President from 1977-1981. Prior to entering politics, Carter was a successful peanut farmer. This button dates from the 1976 presidential campaign and uses the popular peanut image to promote Carter. The peanut image was pervasive during the campaign, and was used both for and against him. In 2002, he became the first president to receive the Nobel Peace Prize.
