The political candidate pictured on this button is Benjamin Adamowski of Chicago. He served in the Illinois State Legislature from 1931 – 1941 and later served as State’s Attorney of Cook County. In 1963, he unsuccessfully ran as the Republican candidate for Mayor of Chicago against the incumbent Richard J. Daley. This button is most likely from his mayoral campaign.
