Title

1952 Stevenson Campaign Poster for President

Description

The political poster featuring the Presidential candidate Adlai Stevenson II is organized by who was running on the ticket of the 1952 presidential election for the Democratic Party. It has photos with the face of each. "Continued Prosperity" is positioned at the top. The theme was important because it carried the values of the outgoing President Harry Truman. It was something many Americans also used in their description of the post war years. Stevenson II was the 31st Governor of Illinois, and was born in Los Angeles. He ran for President in 1952 and 1956, but he was defeated both times by Dwight D. Eisenhower. Stevenson's running mate for 1952 was John C. Sparkman which is positioned at the top of the poster right of Stevenson. Sparkman served in the US Senate and House of Representatives from 1937 to 1979. He was from Alabama. Sherwood Dixon, also on the poster, ran for governor on the ticket for Illinois but lost. Others on the poster included Herbert C. Paschen and Edward Barrett.
