Nixon Fund Contributors


On September 22, 1952 the New York Herald Tribune published the names of all of the people who had contributed to Senator Richard M. Nixon's controversial expense fund. The information was released to the media by the fund's trustee, Dana Smith, a Pasadena, California lawyer. The following day, September 23, 1952, the vice presidential nominee went on national television to give his famous "Checkers" speech. CONELRAD will be publishing much more on the speech next month.
