Wyatt Postcard Found

This postcard was recently discovered on ebay.  It is from a campaign of Wendell Wyatt.

The postcard is similar to many of the era with the member of congress seen walking or standing in front of the U.S. Capitol building. Wyatt was the last Republican to hold Oregon's 1st Congressional Seat in Congress. In 1974, after he decided to retire some campaigns even placed on their bumper stickers and literature X for Wyatt's Republican Seat in Congress!'.

He was first elected to Congress in 1964, following the death of A. Walter Norblad (who he himself had won election after the death of Congressman James Mott).

We will write more about Wyatt in a future post as we have come across a few more campaign items in recent weeks.
