The Illinois Governor is shown sitting at a desk mid conversation
Photograph signed: "Dan Walker". B/w, 8¼x10. Daniel Walker (1922-2015), a veteran of World War II and Korea, was a law clerk for US Supreme Court Justice Fred Vinson, and an aide to Governor and Presidential candidate Adlai Stevenson II and Senator Adlai Stevenson III. The Walker Report, following the tumultuous Democratic National Convention of 1968, acknowledged that demonstrators had tried to provoke the police, but nevertheless characterized the Chicago Police Department's response as a "police riot". Democrat Walker was Governor of Illinois (1973-1977), but lost a bid for re-election, due in no small measure to his poor relationship with Mayor Daley's Democratic machine in Chicago. Charged with bank fraud in a savings & loan scandal (1987), Walker became one of four Illinois Governor's convicted on federal criminal charges since 1973. Unlike the other three, Walker's offenses were unrelated to his conduct as Governor. Ink notes (unknown hand) on verso. Bottom left corner lightly creased. Corners slightly worn. Small printing defect on Governor's face. Otherwise, fine condition.
