1892 Republican National Convention in Minneapolis

Filed under: Podcasts and Slideshows — Pat Coleman @ 8:51 am

As a prelude to this year’s Republican National Convention in Saint Paul, Acquisitions Librarian Patrick Coleman takes a look back at the last time the Twin Cities hosted a national convention, the 1892 Republican Convention in Minneapolis. Then as now, the metro area took center stage with a huge influx of delegates, supporters, and of course, media. However, the conditions and the possibility of a surprise outcome were rather different. Take a listen!

    I am about to sell this house, where I have lived for about 40 years.
    I found a tickect for the Republican Convention, 1892 – 2 balcony seats.
    Have no idea if this means anything, except that the people that lived in this
    house before us were in sympathy with the Confederate Army.

    Guess what? They lost – we won!

    All kinds of deeds, power of attorney’s and personal letters from a
    George Pennington to a Herb Coleman- ring any bells?
