The identities of several more of those “C” unknown campaign buttons have been ascertained (see Feb. 22 PJ). Here’s the latest:
(1) Louis Collins, a Republican, was elected lt. gov. of Minnesota in 1920. He got the “little corporal” nickname for his bravery in World War I.
(2) Thomas Carmody, a Democrat, was elected attorney general of New York in 1910. “Little Yates” refers to Yates County, N.Y.
(3) She was the Republican nominee in Delaware in 1962.
Here are some more unknown “C” candidates. I fear, though, that these may be much tougher to identify.
