This day in Commonwealth Club history: Senator Estes Kefauver (D-Tenn.) discussed "Issues of the Election" in his April 9, 1952, speech to The Commonwealth Club of California. Kefauver would himself be heavily involved in the national election a few years later when he was chosen as the vice presidential candidate in Adlai Stevenson's ill-fated bid for the White House.
