Biographical/Historical Note

The Democratic National Convention is a presidential nominating convention that has been held every four years since 1832 by the United States Democratic party. It has been administered by the Democratic National Committee since the 1852 national convention. The primary goal of the convention is to nominate and confirm a candidate for president and vice president, adopt comprehensive party platform, and unify the party. Pledged delegates from all fifty U.S. states and from American dependencies and territories such as Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands and superdelegates attend the convention to cast their votes to choose the party's presidential candidate. It marks the end of the primary election period and the beginning of the general election season. The Democratic National Convention was held June 14-16, 1916, at the St. Louis Coliseum in St. Louis, Missouri. The convention nominated Woodrow Wilson for president and Thomas R. Marshall for vice-president.
