Letter from Herbert S. Hadley to Joseph M. Dixon

Author:
Hadley, Herbert S. (Herbert Spencer), 1872-1927
Date:
1912-05-29
Description:
Governor Hadley believes that the majority of the Republican National Committee is opposed to Theodore Roosevelt and intends to control the Republican National Convention by ruling in favor of President Taft for all contested delegates. Hadley would like to influence the National Committee by challenging its membership. Several states elect National Committee members at the state convention which is contrary to the regulations for selecting committee members according the National Committee. Hadley believes that state conventions are a legitimate venue for electing National Committee members and would like these elected individuals to insist that they be seated on the National Committee at the Republican National Convention.
