Pinback button promoting Eugene Debs for president and Emil Seidel for vice president, 1912.

Debs, the charismatic leader of the Socialist Party of America and a notable figure in the labor movement since the 1890s, ran for president five times. Seidel, elected mayor of Milwaukee in 1910, was the first Socialist to govern a major U.S. city; he was defeated for re-election in the spring of 1912, then received the party's nomination for vice-president. Together Debs and Seidel polled 897,011 votes (6%) nationwide. Early Socialist and Debs material is very desirable. We offer a choice example of this attractive dated jugate.
