An Union Party campaign billboard from 1936. The billboard promotes William Lemke for President, Jos A. Weber for Congress, and Jos. F. Walsh for Governor, while also reading "Be Independent Vote."
William Lemke served several terns in the U.S. House of Representatives: the first from 1933 to 1941 and the second from 1943 until his death in 1950. He was an important figure in the rise of the Nonpartisan League in North Dakota and was the Union Party Candidate for President in 1936.
