Eugene McCarthy and the 1968 Presidential Election

The centennial of Sen. Eugene McCarthy (1916-2005) provides an opportunity to reflect on the populist Minnesotan’s contribution to American politics nearly 50 years ago. Parallels have been drawn between the 2016 presidential election and McCarthy’s 1968 campaign, where he challenged incumbent Lyndon B. Johnson for the Democratic nomination and eventually faced off against another Minnesotan: vice president Hubert Humphrey.

In this exhibit, visitors can explore McCarthy’s historic campaign through photographs, campaign literature, editorial cartoons and material from his personal papers. "Eugene McCarthy and the 1968 Presidential Election" runs Oct. 15, 2016-Jan. 22, 2017. 

Exhibits may be viewed as part of regular tours or with gallery-only admission of $2.
