June/July, 1944 – GOP vs. Dems, 1944 Style

Burt Thomas, Lynchburg News

Both political parties held their conventions in Chicago in 1944 — the Republicans from June 26 to 28, and the Democrats from July 19 to 21.  The Republicans nominated Governor Thomas E. Dewey of New York for President and Governor John Bricker of Ohio for Vice President.
President Roosevelt was nominated for an unprecedented fourth term at the Democratic National Convention, with Senator Harry S. Truman of Missouri receiving the Vice Presidential nomination.
What follows are a number of cartoons from the conventions and the months following.  They were not dated so may be out of chronological order.
