Photograph signed: "Eugene McCarthy". B/w, 8x10. This photograph was featured in McCarthy's 1970 book, Other Things and the Aardvark. Eugene Joseph McCarthy (1916-2005), a U.S. Senator from Minnesota from 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. 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 1,761¾ votes to McCarthy's 601 and South Dakota Senator George McGovern's 67½. At the 1972 Democratic National Convention, McCarthy received two votes; the nomination went to McGovern on the first ballot. Lightly creased at blank margins and corners. Minor surface creases and scratches (most not evident head on), minor crease at hairline. Overall, fine condition.
