Lou Hirshman

“Thomas Dewey” – 1940

In 1940, Thomas E. Dewey was a candidate vying unsuccessfully to be the Republican choice to run against Franklin D. Roosevelt, the US president who would go on to win his third term (Dewey would later lose two attempts to become president). The New York City prosecutor had a reputation as a tough state’s attorney for going after the Mafia, referenced by Hirshman’s use of a blow-up muscle man doll for his body. Less appreciated by modern viewers of this lesser-known work is Hirshman’s choice of “Grade A” milk bottle caps for ears – Dewey was also known for investigating racketeering in the milk industry.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure
    of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1
    or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?
