Interesting that this Book would provide pages for (4) Ballots ... as it took (6) Ballots to choose the Republican Presidential Candidate at the 1940 RNC. Wendell Willkie ultimately defeated runner-up Robert A. Taft (and Thomas E. Dewey who was leading through three ballots, and strong through the fourth ballot). Willkie's nomination is still considered by historians to have been one
of the most dramatic moments in any political convention.Anyway, this is NOT a Biography Book of Robert A. Taft per se ... one can check his Wiki for that information ... it IS a Book highlighting Taft's Political Record & Views designed for the RNC Delegate to carry at Convention.
