Mark W. W. Baldwin to Governor Andrew Schoeppel

Mark W. W. Baldwin to Governor Andrew Schoeppel
Creator: Baldwin, Mark W. W.
Date: June 4, 1944
Mark W. W. Baldwin writes to Kansas Governor Andrew Schoeppel This newspaper article, attached to a letter written to Governor Schoeppel, refers to the upcoming of election of 1944 in which Roosevelt won his fourth term as president. The article acknowledges that throughout the depression and early 1940s African Americans voted for Roosevelt despite the fact that he was a Democrat. Republicans, ashamed they had lost the black vote in previous elections, were trying very hard to get it back. In past elections, African Americans tended to vote as a group which made them one of the most important racial voting groups in the country. The black vote in the 1944 election was very influential in reelecting Roosevelt to his fourth term as president, making him the only president to ever serve more than two consecutive terms.
