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.

How refreshing.

Here is that address as broadcast by CBS Radio on the closing night of the 1940 Republican convention.
