Abstract

Throughout time we have become familiarized with the winners in political campaigns, however, in our research project, we will be keeping our main focus on presenting the democratic losers among the presidential election’s hosted in the 1960’s; such as Stevenson, Humphrey, Pat Brown, and McGovern. The purpose of our research project examines at what seemed to work for the winners and what didn’t work for the ‘losers’. Mainly focusing on the losers and how their campaign affected their ending result, and what strategies worked and failed. The data we are using will be photos of individual artifacts within the Jane Tolmach Collection which is located in the John Spoor Broome Library at CSU Channel Islands and The Living Room Candidate (livingroomcadidate.org). Photos of each individual artifact will be taken so we can add it to our timeline along with Omeka. The method we will be using would be to digitize these items through Omeka and to create a timeline to show who the losers were, when they ran, who they were up against and the ending results of the campaign. In conclusion, we will show what it was like to be a loser in the democratic party and the effects it had on these candidates. Showing if they continued or if they chose not to run after, as well.

Summary of research results to be presented

Our presentation involves an exhibition of digitized items from the political ephemera collection of Jane Tolmach. Using the items from this collection, allows a dynamic way to illustrate the main themes of our research, including photographs, video, and 360-degree photography.
