Summary
  • Contains sound clips of convention events and news commentary for a documentary produced by WRVA and narrated by George Passage entitled "The Story of John Battle and the 1952 Democratic National Convention." The documentary examines John Battle's role in the fight against the loyalty pledge, which the Virginia delegates believed bound them to support the nominee before he was selected, and the platform before it was adopted. Louisiana, South Carolina, and Virginia refused to support the loyalty pledge and were almost denied participation in the convention. The recordings include excerpts of speeches of Battle, Governor Adlai Stevenson, presidential nominee from Illinois, Senator Richard Russell of Georgia, and the roll call of voting on the resolution. Battle's speech was instrumental in the resolution's defeat. The commentary of George Passage puts the speeches and roll call in context, and provides background information on the events of the convention
  • The sound clips of the convention events and news commentary are separate. The convention events are the first three tracks and the news commentary are the last two tracks. The news commentary recordings set up each sound clip of the convention events
