Next in the “Best of Coolidge” Readings

Governor Calvin Coolidge officially launches the 1920 campaign with his acceptance of the formal notification of his nomination as Vice Presidential candidate for the Republican Party at Smith College in Northampton. Given on July 27, 1920, Coolidge outlines the particulars of the GOP platform and embarks on what will eventually become nearly a ten-year endeavor to hold the Party to its electoral promises, political principles, and governing ideals. How prescient he would be is made clear with the hearing, especially as we head into the 2016 campaign. Enjoy this time capsule of political philosophy and stay tuned for more to come!
