Politicians, 1956-1995, undated

 Series
Identifier: Series 1

Scope and Contents

This series includes images of politicians and political figures in the United States. The images are divided into three subseries: Series 1.1, Presidents, Vice-Presidents, and National Conventions; Series 1.2, New Jersey political figures; and Series 1.3, Peter Rodino. Series 1.1 includes images of Presidents of the United States, particularly John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, and Richard Nixon, Vice-Presidents of the United States, particularly Hubert Humphrey, and National Political Conventions, particularly the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago, Illinois. Series 1.2 includes images of local and state politicians and political figures in and from New Jersey, particularly Governor Richard Hughes and many members of the state senate and assembly in Trenton, NJ. Series 1.3 includes many images of New Jersey Congressman Peter W. Rodino, whom Ace Alagna appears to have followed during some campaigns, and his activities and family.

These images may have been photographed by Ace Alagna or may have been photographed by staff photographers of the Italian Tribune. Earlier images may be more likely to have taken by Ace Alagna; any images featuring Ace Alagna were likely taken by staff photographers. See each subseries description for arrangement.

Images are described at the file level: each file contains a group of images and indicates how many images are in that group. Many images have been scanned; these images have been assigned individual numbers, listed as "Image" with a span of numbers. Images that were not scanned are listed as "Folder" and have one number for the entire file, with an E or SG in the number.
