Campaign Election Pins - Famous 1940 Presidential Race

Willkie slogan election buttons, made an impact on the election.

First, some information about the slogan campaign election pins generally. These buttons were issued on a daily basis during the 1940 campaign, responding to the very latest new breaks from the campaign. Willkie supporters seem to have initiated this avalanche of campaign election pins, and, playing catch-up, the Democrats produced only a much smaller number of slogan pins. Willkie supporters wore these buttons with pride--as one of the buttons put it, "100 Million Buttons Can't Be Wrong." Given the vast number of buttons that have survived the half-century since the Willkie campaign, the 100 million figure doesn't seem to be much of an exaggeration.

Buttons from the 40's

Some of the slogans are so specific, so tied to one particular day and one particular statement uttered by one of the candidates that we collectors don't know what is being referred to on the buttons. One election pin, for example, says "Willkie says Spinach is Spinach. It sure is, Franklin!" Huh?



Another mysterious slogan to beginning collectors is "I Want to be a Captain Too." The story behind this button, however, can easily be traced using 1940 newspapers and magazines.
Roosevelt's son Elliott applied for and received a commission as a captain in the Army Air Corps, prompting Republicans to claim the president had secured a safe and good-paying job for his son. Still, it was peacetime and there was no draft in effect at the time, so Elliott Roosevelt can hardly be called a draft-dodger. Also, since young Roosevelt was the owner of several radio stations, a job as captain in the Army was hardly gravy train for him.

I Want To Be Capt Too Button

Blinking Buttons - Campaign Issue

In his autobiography Elliott Roosevelt recalled, "During the Presidential campaign of 1940 I got some 35,000 letters and postcards, from all over the country, most of them unsigned, of course. At the time, you may be sure, those postcards rankled." Elliott tried to resign his commission to deprive the Republicans of the issue, but his resignation wasn't accepted, leading to still
more Republican blinking buttons. "Papa, They Won't Let Me Resign!" Blinking buttons greatly impacted the 1940 Presidential election.
