Mr. Maury Thompson, scholar on the life and legacy of Charles Evans Hughes, has a fascinating article over at the New York Almanac not only about the long-forgotten Jolson but also the campaign (comprising the ticket of Harding and Coolidge) that won in truly historic proportions one hundred years ago this November. Moreover, we catch an instructive glimpse of Charles E. Hughes’ role in that campaign. Hughes, too, is regrettably overlooked these days. He shouldn’t be and Mr. Thompson is working to remedy that.
