ABSTRACT
The article features the convention of the American Independent Party held in Chicago, Illinois in September 1976. The party nominated former Georgia Governor Lester Maddox, whose distinction lies in his expressed preference for dealing with African Americans. It is unfortunate that some of the press advertised the convention as represening the distillate of conservative thought. The third party had come forward with a candidate and a program that might have mustered a significant vote.
