Al Ullman Tweeted At Me

Oregon APIC member Grant Schott tweeted this neat photo of Congressman Al Ullman to me over the weekend. I thought I would share it here.

This photo was taken in 1956 during a Stevenson and Democratic campaign rally at Bonneville Dam. Note the silver shoe lapel pin and the Oregon Needs Morse 7/8 inch pin. Of course, Ullman is wearing a much larger pin with his name on it.

Ullman was a legendary political mover and shaker in Congress. As we have mentioned before, the highpoint of his congressional influence came as Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee from 1974-1981.

It is always fun to find a photo of an Oregon politician wearing some campaign regalia. Thanks  @grantschott

Have a photo share with us? Just post it here in the comments.
