Vintage 1939 L os Angeles County Young Democrats Convention “Home of Hospitality” Pin and Ribbon. The Badge is Gold Color? And very nice however the years have made ribbon hard to read. How I read this ribbon: in my hand under good light you can see 1939. December 1 – 2 – 3. For almost a century, CYD has played an important role in California politics. The history of CYD is full of fascinating stories and persons. Many prominent leaders in California history past and present can trace their leadership beginnings to this statewide network of Young Democrat clubs. CYD is the official youth organizing arm of the California Democratic Party. The late 1930s was an eventful time for CYD. CYD members organized a campaign to elect Culbert Olson governor in 1938, Californias first Democratic governor of the century. The 1938 CYD state convention in Oakland was an exciting one. Elizabeth Carlson Snyder, who later went on to be the first woman chair of the State Central Committee, served as the 1938 platform committee chair. She presided over a committee meeting that produced two distinct platforms from two groups of YDs supporting two very different platforms. The group supporting President Roosevelts foreign policy initiatives eventually succeeded as the official CYD stance. After the convention, CYD voted to deny charters to would-be Young Democrat clubs that opposed Roosevelts efforts. One noteworthy leader of this era was John Emerson Moss Jr. An early President and national committeeman, who later went on to serve in both the California State Assembly and Congress. Moss is best known for advocating the passage of the Freedom of Information Act. Unfortunately, however, the early state organization faded away during the war years. The California Young Democrats experienced a resurgence after World War II. Lionel Steinberg, a young liberal grape grower from Fresno, worked to reorganize the statewide Young Democrats organization. Steinberg had great credibility with established politicians: during the close 1948 Presidential election, he helped organize a last minute whistle-stop train ride through Californias Central Valley that helped Harry Truman carry state by only 17,000 votes the same margin Steinberg delivered for the Democrats in Fresno County alone. After the 1948 election, Steinberg began organizing young people he had met on the campaign. Steinberg later became the first table grape grower to sign an historic contract with Cesar Chavez and his United Farm Workers in 1970. = More on the web. ESTATE ITEMS AS FOUND AT ESTATE.
