1924 "Honest Days with Davis - Teapot Dome" Anti-Republican Pinback
Corruption in government! That was the focus of the Democratic campaign to secure the Presidency in 1924. The lightning rod for the Democrat's ire was known as the "Teapot Dome" scandal. This classic and exceptionally rare pinback button is reflective of the Democrats' 1924 anti-corruption attack. Produced for the candidacy of John W. Davis of West Virginia (who was soundly defeated by incumbent Coolidge), this super-clean button reads "Honest Days With Davis" over a line-drawing of "Teapot Dome." The bright white button has retained its original back paper.
Theodore Roosevelt 1900 Signed Letter Featuring Phenomenal Content - "I Would Rather Be Professor of History in Some College" Than Be Vice President!
In November 1899, following the death of Vice President Garret Hobart, Republican leaders became determined to push Roosevelt into the vice presidency—leading, they hoped, to political obscurity. This one-page typewritten letter, composed on TR's gubernatorial stationery, dismisses the idea. In part, Roosevelt writes, "Most emphatically the Vice Presidential nomination is the last thing I want. I would rather be professor of history in some college." Obviously he changed his mind. He was nominated to be President William McKinley's running mate. Roosevelt's six months as vice president ended when when McKinley died from an assassin's bullet and Roosevelt became, at age 42, America's youngest Chief Executive.
