Additional Information: 

Henry Wallace (1888-1965) was the 33rd Vice President of the United States, founder of the Progressive Party, and the party’s first nominee in the 1948 Presidential election. Appointed as Secretary of Agriculture by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1933, Wallace was later selected to be his running mate in the 1940 election. After World War II, Wallace was increasingly critical of President Truman and his policies regarding the Cold War and used the Progressive Party to further an agenda which included national health insurance and rectifying relations with the Soviet Union.
