Faubus, a Democratic governor of Arkansas, became internationally known during the Little Rock Crisis of 1957, when he used the National Guard to stop black students from attending Little Rock Central High School, defying a unanimous Supreme Court verdict. Though he did not acknowledge the nomination and endorsed John F. Kennedy, Faubus was the States' Rights Party candidate for president in 1960, and received over 200,000 votes in the election, mostly in the deep South.
