Progressive Bull Moose pinOne hundred years ago, the presidential election of 1912 saw the emergence of the strongest third-party candidate in American history when former president Theodore Roosevelt returned to the political arena as the standard bearer of the Progressive "Bull Moose" Party and Eugene Debs made the best showing ever for a Socialist Party candidate. Between 4 September and 27 November, the Society will display personal correspondence, photographs, and political memorabilia to show how Woodrow Wilson eked out a victory in one of the most closely contested presidential elections in Massachusetts history.
