The original inspiration for this paper, and the source of many references, was Frederick Lewis Allen's Only Yesterday, a work which stands alone in its documentation of American society in the 1920's. Other works depended upon more than the usual include Lee Allen's excellent study of the McAdoo candidacy, "The McAdoo Campaign for the Presidential Nomination in 1924," in the American H1storical Review; Frank Freidel's portrayal of Franklin Roosevelt during the lean years (for him) of the 1920's, Franklin D. Roosevelt: The Ordeal; John D. Hicks' analysis of politics during this same period, Republ1can Ascendancy; the New York T1mes and the official report of the convention's proceedings; and finally the letters, documents and campaign material to which I was generously granted access in both the Franklin Roosevelt Library and the Library of Congress.
