Catalogue Note

The work is inscribed ‘Los Angeles 1960’. This probably refers to the National Democratic Convention held in Los Angeles, July 1960. While a number of seasoned and experienced Democrats vied to be their political party’s choice for president, ultimately it was the young senator from Massachusetts who won the nomination.
