peoples lobby1A six page mailer from the People’s Lobby for Progressive Legislation in late 1936 or early 1937.

The “People’s Lobby” made quite a splash at the legislature that year. There are a number of photos online at the Minnesota Historical Society, including a nice one of a young Archie Baumann – who grew up to run unsuccessfully against Vin Weber in 1980 – napping with his dad. MHSBaumann
