Minutes of the Meeting of the Executive Committee of the Progressive National Committee held in New York City, November 30th, 1915

Progressive Party (1912)
Minutes of the November 30, 1915, meeting of the Executive Committee of the Progressive National Committee. Party organization was discussed and it was decided that the National Committee would meet on January 11, 1916, to fix the date of the national Progressive Party Convention. In states where primaries were to be held for presidential candidates, it was decided that delegates to the Progressive National Convention should be uninstructed regarding whether to place the names of Colonel Roosevelt and Mr. Johnson in such contests, and that in particular Colonel Roosevelt's name should not be submitted in Republican primary contests. A statement was issued affirming that Progressives throughout the country were committed to maintaining the organization "with all the vigor possible," and that the National Committee would therefore meet to prepare for the 1916 election.
