    Theodore Roosevelt: 1912 Progressive Party Nominating Petitions. 10" x 14" scrapbook in marbled boards with cloth spine and corners. It is approximately 3/4's filled with items related to Theodore Roosevelt's nomination as the Progressive Party presidential candidate. The leaves are quite brittle, but the contents are in good condition. It is made up exclusively of mimeographed and printed signed petitions denouncing the RNC in Chicago and pledging support to TR. These are all dated June 22, 1912 and are inscribed: "H. B. McDowell/ 305-5th Ave/ New York City." They start out by declaring: "We, the Undersigned, denouncing the fraud perpetrated by the so-called National Convention of the Republican Party, dedicate ourselves to the Progressive Principles advocated and maintained by Theodore Roosevelt, the next President of the United States." We have not researched the signatures, but assume there might be some people of consequence in the list.
