California the State that Saved Woodrow Wilson in 1919, invites the Democratic National Committee to hold The 1928 Convention in San Francisco.
[San Francisco]: . 16 x 11-1/4. pp, of which 3pp are printed text and the remaining 13pp contain tipped-in signed typescript letters on letterhead, two photomechanically copied documents, and five photographs. Yellow string-bound wrappers printed in black, housed inside a custom mustard yellow chemise with leather ties. B&w photographs pasted in. Light soiling and dampstaining to wrappers; spine foot bumped and reinforced with archival japan tape, as is the interior of the spine; ink ownership signature to front wrapper. Very Good.
An invitation given to the Democratic National Committee, attempting to persuade it to hold the 1928 nominating convention in San Francisco. Included are letters from state and city officials -- a photograph of a signed typed letter from the Governor C. C. Young and a TLs from Mayor James Rolph, Jr -- as well as typed letters signed from H. H. McPike, Chairman of the Democratic State Central Committee; Philip J. Fay, President of the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce; the President of San Francisco's Down Town Association (whose name is illegible); John F. Shea, President of the California Northern Hotel Association; R. B. Hale, President of the California Development Association; and Paul T. Carroll, President of the San Francisco Convention & Tourist League. Additional documents and photographs tout the success of the 1920 DNC convention held in San Francisco, as well as the city's skyline and Ferry Building.
Despite the elaborate efforts made here, Houston won the heart of the DNC, perhaps in a bid (which didn't work) to win Texas for the Democrats in the election.
OCLC locates one holding, at the Bancroft.
