|The picture shows a view of all (3) Old Thomas Dewey Political Campaign Buttons in this lot. These are with two different running mates. All three are believed to be from the 1940s. Two of these are marked as follows:|
DEWEY - BRICKER
BASTIAN BROS. CO. ROCHESTER, N.Y.
The other pinback button reads as follows:
DEWEY - WARREN
L. J. IMBER CO. CHICAGO, ILL.
These pin back buttons each measure 13/16'' wide. These appear to be in excellent condition as pictured. Below here is some Historical reference information that was found:
1948 Republican National Convention
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The 1948 Republican National Convention was held at the Municipal Auditorium, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, from June 21 to June 25, 1948. New York Governor Thomas E. Dewey had paved the way to win the Republican presidential nomination in the primaries where he had beaten Minnesota Governor Harold E. Stassen and the victorious World War II General Douglas MacArthur. In Philadelphia he was nominated on the third ballot over the opposition from die-hard conservative Ohio Senator Robert A. Taft, from the future ''minister of peace'' Harold E. Stassen of Pennsylvania, Michigan Senator Arthur Vandenberg and California Governor Earl Warren. Warren was nominated for Vice President. Together they went on to narrowly lose the general election to Democrats Harry S. Truman and Alben W. Barkley.
