Hats in the ring

10 episodes, 1956, Johns Hopkins University

From WNET:

"This 10-part series is concerned not with election campaigns but with the intricate political processes that wind up with nominations in the two major parties. Featured as lecturer-guide is Malcolm Moos, professor of political science at Johns Hopkins University, who served on the team conducting a comprehensive study of the 1952 nominating conventions for the American Political Science Association. While the series is designed primarily to show how a candidate is nominated, it also will focus on the history of presidential nominations. Produced for the Center by Johns Hopkins University, over one hundred stills, maps and films are used in the series to dramatically illustrate American political processes."
