Title

Allen M. Fletcher for United States Senator Leaflet, 1916

Description

This leaflet exemplifies a common political advertising strategy used just before an election. It both highlights the candidate's qualities ("Mr. Fletcher's record is an open book--read it") and prepares the public for what they will see when they enter the voting booth on Tuesday, September 12, 1916, for the Republican Vermont Senatorial primary. Carroll S. Page would go on to best his opponents, Fletcher and Charles W. Gates. Fletcher served as Governor of Vermont from 1912-1915.
