CELEBRATING PRESIDENTS DAY ... Palo Alto resident Joseph Baldwin will display his collection of original letters, documents and signatures of all 44 U.S. presidents on Feb. 17 and 18, in the parish hall at All Saints Episcopal Church, 555 Waverley St., Palo Alto. Starting with President Barack Obama, visitors can "step back in time" all the way to George Washington as they peruse original autographs, hand-written letters, notes and other assorted manuscripts on display between noon and 4 p.m. on both days. The exhibition will include a 1799 letter from George Washington (complete with writing errors and crossed-out lines), a letter James Madison wrote during his last days, a note from Ronald Reagan, and a 1969 Gerald Ford letter from his time as House minority leader.
