The 1944 LCA dinner and show

72 years ago, the 1944 LCA dinner was held in downtown Albany, in a long gone hotel at State and Pearl. There's a Starbucks on the site today. From left, Tom Dewey, Al Smith, Jim Farley. Two presidential nominees, one a Republican the other a Democrat, and the Irish Catholic pol most responsible for electing FDR.
