Cox-Roosevelt Piece - Campaign of 1920

Pictured above is one of the top posters in the hobby of political item collecting.  It is from the campaign of 1920. Pictured are Democratic candidates James Cox, a communications pioneer and giant from Ohio, and a young Franklin D. Roosevelt of New York State.  They would lose soundly to a GOP ticket of Warren Harding and Calvin Coolidge in November of 1920. 
 
This poster hangs in the corporate headquarters of Cox Communications in Atlanta, among a collection of the top James Cox campaign pieces in the nation.  The collection is available for view by the public.  It is an exceptional collection of American campaign history.
