    Thomas & Maurer: 1932 Socialist Party Jugate Poster. 18" x 21½" sepia poster titled: "Repeal Unemployment!" It reads: "For President Norman Thomas For Vice President James H. Maurer Vote Socialist". Thomas assumed the mantle of Socialist Party leadership after the death of Eugene Debs in 1926. He bested Debs's record for running for president, making the attempt six times. Since there is only one Thomas & Maurer jugate button known and jugate pamphlets lack much in graphics, this is the best available display piece for the 1932 Socialist ticket. This example came out of a collection of an old-time left-wing collector. We recall one example in the Chick Harris Collection and a third in an old-time New York City collection. There are minor tears and one area of loss to the top corners and some tape bleed-through around the perimeter from prior repairs or mounting (sections of tape still adhered on verso). It still displays quite well. An evocative piece of the Great Depression.
