Who Dat? – J

Last month’s “Who Dat?” feature left a lot to be desired.  For some time now, we’ve been offering photos of unknown buttons, arranged alphabetically by candidate names, for you to help identify.  But last month focused on candidates whose last name began with an “I” — and there were only a handful to illustrate.

Who Dat? – C (Part 2)

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.
