    Description

    [William Jennings Bryan]: 1896 People's Party Convention Ribbon Badge. 3" x 9 3/4" badge worn by a member of the "Executive Committee" at the People's Party "National Convention St. Louis July 22'' 96". The green satin ribbon has silver-stamped lettering and design, as well as silver metallic thread fringe. The silvered brass hanger has red & blue enamel highlights. Some wear to the lettering on the ribbon, but quite nice overall and the only example known to us. This convention endorsed Bryan as their presidential candidate, but nominated a different running mate, Thomas E. Watson of Georgia, rather than Arthur Sewall of Maine.
    From the collection of Ed Sullivan.
