The 1948 Campaign is Strictly Gay Nineties

October 1948
Saturday Evening Post;10/23/1948, Vol. 221 Issue 17, p152
The article reflects on the 1948 presidential campaigns of U.S. President Harry S. Truman and Vice-President Henry Wallace. Truman denounces Wall Street for restraining the Republicans while Wallace denounces it for restraining the president. The advice to those who intend to protest against the two major parties is to select either presidential candidate Norman Thomas or the Dixiecrats. Thomas was considered the outstanding personality of the campaign and a man of character and wit.
