October additions to the Muncie and Delaware County Films and Videos Collection
With political campaigns currently in full swing, these new films provide historical perspective on United
States politics "on both sides of the aisle” in the 1960s. These films include
Party campaign event featuring an address by Birch Bayh, Democratic candidate
for United States Senate, an interview with William
Ruckelshaus, Republican candidate for United States Senate, and interviews documenting
the reactions of Muncie residents to the protests and results of the 1968
Democratic National Convention.
This unidentified person campaigning
at Southway Plaza Shopping Center in Muncie, Indiana is wearing a name tag,
but we just can’t quite read it. Comment on this post or send us an email at email@example.com if you can help us identify
this person or any of the other unidentified persons or events
in these films.
