Content Description

The collection consists of one letter, photocopied news clippings and a campaign poster concerning William J. Bulow and his run for Governor of South Dakota in 1924 and 1928. The letter, postmarked October 21, 1924, is from Bulow’s second wife Sarah (Farrand) Bulow. The letter talks about the campaign and other business and family matters. Two newspapers, the Beresford Republic (August 21, 1924) and the Beresford News (September 18, 1924) are included with the collection. The sections concerning Bulow were photocopied and the originals discarded. The newsprint had already done some damage to the back of the poster. Bulow was unsuccessful at his first run for Governor in 1924, but was successful in 1926 and again in 1928. The poster was for his reelection campaign as Governor in 1928. The poster measures 11 ½ by 14 inches and has “He Has Made Good” on the front with a photo of Governor Bulow seated at the left side of the poster. The poster includes “facts” from 1925 and 1927 legislative expenses and appropriations and the Governor’s office budget from 1928.
