More On the Contested Convention of 1924

Following up on the previous entry on this subject, national newspapers and magazines have picked up the theme of parallels between the 1924 and 2016 presidential campaigns. The New York Times wrote a piece yesterday and the New Yorker will have a piece in their March 21 edition. Both pieces mention W&L Law alumnus John W. Davis, and the New Yorker comment includes an amusing anecdote involving another of our most distinguished graduates, Newton D. Baker.
