Title

Questionnaire for Republican Gubernatorial Candidates, May 22, 1920

Creator

Wardner, Henry Steele, 1867-1935

Description

Questionnaire addressed to the candidates for the 1920 Republican nomination for Governor: James Hartness, Frederick H. Babbitt, Curtis S. Emery, and Frank W. Agan. The questionnaire was circulated by H.S. Wardner, a resident of Windsor, VT, seeking to deepen the level of discourse by the candidates, which he saw thus far as merely "the expression of laudable hopes or aspirations with which nobody seriously disagrees." The twenty-seven questions range widely in topic, including education, regulation of private businesses, the role of Justices of Peace, and Vermont electoral processes. James Hartness would later win the primary and the subsequent general election.
