The picture shows a view of this Old Unused New Hampshire Senator Norris Cotton Advertising Folding Yard Stick. This folding yardstick is not dated but it is from sometime between 1956 and 1975. The yardstick is believed to be a give away advertising item during one of his campaigns between those years. It is made of wood with metal grommets. It had dark blue print on red, white, and blue backgrounds. The back is color as well but it is blank. It is marked as follows:

NORRIS COTTON
IS A GOOD SENATOR
BY ANY MEASURE
DUDLEY ORR
CONCORD, N.H.

The yard stick measures one yard or 36'' long. It appears to be in mint unused condition as pictured. Below here, for reference, is some Historic information about Senator Norris Cotton:

Norris H. Cotton (May 11, 1900 - February 24, 1989) was an American Republican politician from the state of New Hampshire. He was born on a farm in Warren, New Hampshire. He was educated at Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire and Wesleyan University in Connecticut. While in college, he served as a clerk to the New Hampshire state senate and as a member of the New Hampshire state house of representatives in 1923 as one of the youngest legislators in history. He became a lawyer after attending The George Washington University Law School and practiced law in Lebanon, New Hampshire. He was elected to the state house of representatives again in 1943. He served as majority leader that year and as speaker during 1945. In 1946 he was elected to the United States House of Representatives from New Hampshire for the first time. He served until 1954 when he ran for a seat in the United States Senate from New Hampshire in a special election to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Charles W. Tobey. He was elected to a full term in 1956, reelected twice and served in the Senate until 1975.

One of his most controversial votes came when he was the only Senator from New England to vote against the Civil Rights Act of 1964. However, Cotton would vote for later civil rights acts such as the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and the Civil Rights Act of 1968. He was a prominent leader of his party in the Senate, chairing the Senate Republican Conference from 1973 to 1975. He did not run for reelection in 1974. Three days before his final term ran out Cotton resigned to allow the governor to appoint Louis C. Wyman.

He was reappointed to the Senate in August 1975 after the election of his successor was contested. The closest Senate election in history, it went through two recounts at the state level, followed by protracted debate on the Senate floor, until both candidates agreed to a special election. Cotton served as a temporary senator until the September 1975 special election, the result of which was not challenged. Cotton returned to Lebanon, New Hampshire, where he died at age 88 from natural causes. The comprehensive cancer center at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon is named for Senator Cotton. The Federal building in Manchester, New Hampshire, also bears his name.
