An unidentified grain elevator with an Union Party sign in 1936. The sign reads: "Vote Farmer Labor and Get Cost of Production for 1.5 Interest Elect Wm. Lemke." 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.
