A Voice from the Past

Do you remember Eugene McCarthy? It’s been some time since his was a familiar name in American politics. He held a Senate seat for Minnesota from 1959-1971, and was a candidate for President several times, beginning with his run against the Vietnam War and Lyndon Johnson in 1968. His career continued through the 1980s, and he died in 2005.

In my on-going COVID closet clean-out exercises, I found this gem yesterday among political memorabilia, just as photographed below. I do not know which of his campaigns it came from; the attached button is a tiny one half inch wide.

Imagine that.
