Title:

Photographs of California Delegates to the Progressive National Convention, Chicago

Creator/Contributor:

Bancroft, Philip, 1881-1975, creator

Creator/Contributor:

Moffett, photographer

Abstract:

Two oversize prints are formal group portraits of California delegates to the 1912 Progressive National Convention in Chicago in support of that party's presidential candidate, Theodore Roosevelt. Among those pictured are then-California Governor Hiram Johnson (the Progressive candidate for Vice-President), former California Governor George C. Pardee, and Philip Bancroft. The delegates' close affiliation with the Republican Party -- the National Convention of which was also held in Chicago at that time -- is evident by the banners depicted. Other photos are snapshots depicting various associates of the delegation, taken at train stations (perhaps en route from California to Chicago?). Also included is a snapshot of two boys in Turlock, Calif. posing with leaflet material promoting the 1938 election of Republican candidate Philip Bancroft for U.S. Senator.
