Republican Convention 1940 – Wendell Wilkie Acceptance Speech – Past Daily Reference Room
Click on the link here for audio player: Wilkie Acceptance Speech – 1940
No frills, no send-ups, no films, no slide-shows. Wendell Wilkie accepted the nomination as Presidential candidate for the Republican party in the 1940 election.
His speech lasted just a little over six minutes – the demonstration lasted a bit longer. All business and no bullshit.
Here is that address as broadcast by CBS Radio on the closing night of the 1940 Republican convention.
