1920: Republican National Convention
In June 1920, United States GOP delegates and other party members gathered in Chicago for the Republican National Convention. According to historians, the convention was at an impasse without a candidate everyone could agree on when leaders turned their attention to Ohio Sen. Warren G. Harding. The Midwestern senator was seen as a compromise and managed to secure the presidential nomination, picking up Calvin Coolidge as his running mate and defeating Democrat James M. Cox in the election. Here, the mass of delegates can be seen in the convention hall in this photo from the Library of Congress.
