DescriptionTwo Tickets to the 1904 Republican National Convention Belonging to Senator Smoot. Two "Guest's Tickets" to the Republican Convention held in Chicago on June 21, 1904 which nominated Theodore Roosevelt for president and Indiana Senator Charles W. Fairbanks for vice president. The two tickets, both with coupons for the afternoon session attached, are for the third day of the event. Accompanied by the original transmittal envelope addressed to "Senator Smoot" in pencil on the front. Both tickets fine.
Reed Smoot was Utah's longest serving senator with tenure of thirty years. A devout Mormon, Smoot served as an apostle, and was a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. When he was first elected, a bitter 4 year battle ensued to determine whether Smoot would be allowed to serve because of his role as a Mormon apostle. Although the committee recommended that Smoot be removed from office, the Senate overruled the decision and Smoot was allowed to serve his term. After repeated re-elections, Smoot would continue to serve as Utah's Senator for 30 years. He would also continue to serve as an apostle of the LDS, and upon his death, he was third in the line of succession to lead the church.
