Detailed Description

Size 14" X 22"
Sizes are approximate.

So popular was Grand Ole Opry star Roy Acuff in the 1940s that the Republican Party actually pleaded with him repeatedly to run for the governorship of Tennessee. He finally did in 1948, as these 14” x 22” Hatch posters attest. Acuff lost, but he gained more votes than any previous GOP candidate in what was then a solidly Democratic state. On the plus side, he didn’t have to trade his six-figure earnings for the governor’s $8,000 salary! Printed on acid-free paper for durability.
