Kalamazoo College Mock Democratic Convention, 1932
MetadataShow full item record
The first Kalamazoo College Mock Democratic Convention, 1932. An article in the student paper "The Index" on February 5 of that year stated that "Red hot oratory, nominational parades, and all the noise, hilarity, and tenseness of a genuine convention will fill the nominating hall." Some 400 delegates, most from regional high schools, and over 1,500 guests were expected to fill the College's Tredway Gymnasium on the afternoon of March 19, 1932. President Hoben gave the opening address, and Kalamazoo's mayor presented a key to the city to the convention chairman. Balloting was held in the evening session, and the nomination went to Newton D. Baker of Ohio. The photographer is not identified.
