Geraldine Ferraro

Filed under: Item of the Day — Adam Harris @ 2:35 pm

On July 12, 1984, Walter Mondale made history in Saint Paul when he introduced Geraldine Ferraro as his running mate for the Vice Presidency of the United States. Rep. Ferraro was the first woman, and the first Italian-American, to run on a major party ticket. Geraldine Ferraro passed away on Saturday, March 26, 2011 after a long battle with multiple myeloma. These photos and objects are just a sample of the many items from the 1984 campaign in the Minnesota Historical Society’s collections.
