A Man's Reach -- A Transforming Life, 28: Special State Senate Election, 1949

Campaign Flyer, State Senate Election, 1949

"It probably is not accurate to say that I was a prominent person when I ran for the legislature the first time, but I certainly was active. Someone on my campaign committee once remarked, 'Elmer, for all the activities you've been in, you're sure unknown!' That comment expresses the challenge every non-incumbent faces."
