1924 Republican National Convention
The 1924 National Convention of the Republican Party of the United States was held in Cleveland, Ohio, at the Public Auditorium
Public Auditorium
from June 10 to June 12. For this convention the method of allocating delegates changed in order to reduce the overrepresentation of the South.[1] This effort proved only partly successful as Southern delegates would actually be more overrepresented than they had been in 1916 or 1920; however, they were not as overrepresented as they had been before 1912. It also made history by being the first GOP convention to give women equal representation. The Republican National Committee

approved a rule providing for a national committee-man and a national committee-woman from each state.[2] Controversy ensued as some delegates attempted to insert a condemnation of the Ku Klux Klan

James Eli Watson
James Eli Watson (November 2, 1864 – July 29, 1948) was a U.S. Representative and U.S. Senator from Indiana. He was the Senate's second official majority leader. While an article published by the Senate (see References) gives his year of birth as 1862, this is most probably incorrect. He was born in Winchester, Indiana, one of six children. His father was a lawyer, a Republican state legislator, and owner-editor of the local newspaper, the Winchester Herald. At the age of twelve, Watson accompanied his father to the 1876 Republican National Convention. Watson attended DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana and graduated in 1886. At DePauw he was a member of Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity. He then studied law, was admitted to the bar in 1886 and joined his father's law firm. Political career[edit] Watson campaigned for Republican candidates throughout the 1880s and moved to Rushville, Indiana in 1893

Progressive Party (United States, 1924–34)
The Progressive Party of 1924 was a new party created as a vehicle for Robert M. La Follette, Sr. to run for president in the 1924 election. It did not run candidates for other offices, and it disappeared after the election. The party advocated progressive positions such as government ownership of railroads and electric utilities, cheap credit for farmers, the outlawing of child labor, stronger laws to help labor unions, more protection of civil liberties, an end to American imperialism in Latin America, and a referendum before any president could lead the nation into war. After winning election to the United States Senate in 1905, La Follette had emerged as a leader of progressives. He sought the Republican presidential nomination in the 1912 election, but many of his backers switched to Theodore Roosevelt after the former president entered the race. La Follette refused to join Roosevelt's Progressive Party, and that party collapsed after 1916
