Event Description

Which U.S. presidents lived in Compton? What Roosevelt ran for governor of California in 1950? What California politicians were the Republican Party candidates for vice president in 1948, 1952 and 1956? What California governor became one of the most significant U.S. Supreme Court justice of the 20thcentury?

The answer to these and more questions can be found in the the “Rival Candidates: Electioneering and Politicians in California” exhibit on display through February 2013 at California State University, Dominguez Hills.

Featuring the election and political materials housed in the CSU Dominguez Hills University Archives and Special Collections, the exhibit focuses on national, state and local elections and politics. Included in the exhibition are newspaper headlines from major events involving presidents, political conventions during the 1940s and 1950s, the strange saga of cross-filing for primary elections in California, early minority congressional candidates, presidential inaugurations, buttons, White House signing pens, campaign buttons and even White House Easter Egg Hunt eggs.

The exhibit also features the papers and ephemera from three California leaders that University Archives and Special Collections is charged with preserving: the Glenn Anderson Collection, the Juanita Millender-McDonald Collection, the Glenn Dumke Collection.

The Glenn Anderson Collection features an endless array of materials from the 1930s to the 1990s. Anderson (1913-1994) was the mayor of Hawthorne before he was 30, a state assemblyman, co-founder of the State Democratic Council, lieutenant governor for eight years during the Pat Brown administration, and congressman from the South Bay and Long Beach for 20 years.  He helped fund the 710 freeway, and the 105 freeway is named for him.

Juanita Millender-McDonald (1938-2007) was a congresswoman from the South Bay from (1996-2007), a state legislator, and Carson City Council member.

Dr. Glenn Dumke (1917-1989) was a history professor and dean at Occidental College, President of San Francisco State College and Chancellor of the CSU System from 1962 to 1982. Dumke’s papers are part of the CSU System Archives, which are housed at CSU Dominguez Hills.

University Archives and Special Collections is located on the fifth floor of the University Library’s South Wing. It is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in For more information call 310 243-3895.
