Title

Howard V. Corcoran 1964 Republican National Convention Pin

Description

Between 1962 and 1964, Howard V. Corcoran of Wheeling was West Virginia's Republican State Chairman, leading the state's Republicans through a slump in support state wide. In fact, between the 1960 and 1964 major elections, votes for the Republican candidates in West Virginia were reduced by 15%, with only 4 out of 55 counties voting Republican in the 1964 Presidential election. Nonetheless, Corcoran along with two other Republican leaders in the state, Congressman Arch A. Moore, Jr. and Mrs. Perle T. Harman from Bluefield, all represented their state at the 1964 Republican National Convention.
