This kerchief was distributed by the Socialist Party of America in 1932. Although Morris Hillquit received 100,000 votes in his bid for mayor, 1932 marked the SPA's last strong showing in an election. Workers, particularly those from the garment industry, who formed the party's base in the 1920's, fled either to the Democratic Party or to the more radical Communist Party.
