Throwback Thursday: Dewey defeats Truman

Our June 1950 issue filled alumni in on the many ways Yale students could “practice the art of public speaking.” This photo featured Yale Political Union vice president Lawrence McQuade ’50 and president T. George Harris ’49 in the aftermath of a 1948 mock presidential election. The magazine reported that “Thomas E. Dewey won by a comfortable majority.”
