Republican National Convention of 1892: Newspapers

Suggested Newspapers & Dates

Useful dates:

Although the convention ran from June 7-10, newspaper coverage started earlier and ran later than the convention dates. There is also coverage of the meeting in Washington, D.C., in November 1891 where Minneapolis was chosen for the convention city. The footnotes in June Holmquist's "Convention City" article provide lots of specific dates, as do the footnotes in Iric Nathanson's "African Americans and the 1892 Republican National Convention, Minneapolis" article.
