Part of the crowd greeting Dwight Eisenhower in Boise, August 20, 1952. The image is a bit distorted
because the cellulose acetate negative on which it was captured has deteriorated. Idaho Statesman
photo 520820.
Statesman political editor John Corlett reported that "old-timers could not remember
when a crowd as large as 20,000 persons was ever assembled in one spot in the Gem state to hear a
political speech."

Before the crowds assembled.  MSS 111, Idaho Statesman photo 520819.
