EUGENE McCARTHY. Signature: "Eugene McCarthy", 5x3 card. McCarthy (1916-2005), U.S. Representative (1949-1959) and then Senator from Minnesota (1959-1971), later sought the Democratic nomination for President in 1968, running as an anti-Vietnam War candidate. His defeat of President Johnson in the March New Hampshire primary led to New York Senator Robert Kennedy's candidacy and Johnson's decision not to seek reelection on March 31st. At the Democratic National Convention held in Chicago, August 26-29, 1968, incumbent Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey won the presidential nomination on the first ballot with 1,761 votes to McCarthy's 601 and South Dakota Senator George McGovern's 67½. He has been a college professor, author and editor. Faint nail head sized stain in blank upper right corner. Otherwise, fine condition.
