Pinback button promoting Henry Wallace for president, 1948.

Wallace hoped to further the liberal policies of the Franklin Roosevelt administration, in which he had served as Secretary of Agriculture and later vice-president, party conservatives forcing him out over Roosevelt's objections in favor of Harry Truman. This button cleverly evokes Roosevelt's memory by depicting Wallace casting him as a shadow.
