[RADICAL RIGHT] UPSHAW, William D.
Bombshells for Wets and Reds - The Twin Devils of America [at foot of title] Compilation of Speeches, Newspaper and Magazine Articles
[Black Mountain, NC: by the Author, 1936]. First Edition. Octavo (19cm). Blue printed wrappers; frontispiece portrait; 99pp. INSCRIBED by the author on front endpaper: "Yours for God and humanity," undated. Wrapper edges chipped; minor soiling to covers and text; Good or better. Collection of writings and addresses by the popular Georgia Congressman, Anti-Saloon League speaker, and 1932 U.S. Presidential candidate on the Prohibition Party ticket. Despite healthy measures of Southern populism, evangelical Protestantism and anti-Communism, it must be said on Upshaw's behalf that his writings display no overt anti-Semitic or racist tendencies. He was known in Congressional circles as the "driest of the dries." Ironically, he finished fourth in the 1932 Presidential election -- behind William Z. Foster, the Communist Party candidate.
