Champ Clark for President, 1912-2012
Just over one hundred years ago, Champ Clark of Bowling Green, Missouri was unfairly denied the Democratic Presidential nomination at the turbulent Baltimore Convention of 1912. Due to a split in the Republican Party, if nominated Clark would have been elected the 28th President of the United States, the first Missourian to hold the Executive Office.
Missouri State Flag
The flag of the State of Missouri was accepted and adopted by the legislature of Missouri during the administration of Governor Elliott Major (1913-1917). This flag was designed by Mrs. Elizabeth Watkins Oliver of Cape Girardeau. It was raised over the State Capitol where it flew for a few hours, was lowered and presented to Governor and Mrs Majors by adjutant General John B. Omeara, a military aide to the Governor.
Danforth to keynote Honeyshuck Banquet
The Hon. John C. (Jack) Danforth will be the guest speaker as the Champ Clark House (Honeyshuck) hosts its annual dinner Thursday evening Sept. 25, 2014.
Danforth has a long list of public service, including Missouri Attorney General, United States Senator, and United States Permanent Representative to the United Nations and the Danforth Foundation. He will share his reflections - and concerns - on the state of politics today, and compare today’s environment with those in which the Clarks served in public office.
The dinner will be held at Bowling Green First Presbyterian Church, 205 West Centennial, Bowling Green. Doors open at 6 p.m.; the dinner begins at 6:30. Cost per person is $20. For more information, call Charlene at 573.324.3154; or Mary at 573.324.3375.
