Description The Anti-Monopoly National Convention assembled in the Hershey Music Hall in Chicago IL. The party had been formed to express opposition to the business practices of the emerging nationwide companies. There were delegates present from 16 states, but half of the delegates came from MI and IL.

Temporary Chairman: Alson J. Streeter IL

Permanent Chairman: John F. Henry

Benjamin F. Butler was nominated for President on the first ballot as seen here. Delegates from NY and MD bolted the convention when it appeared that no discussion of other candidates would be allowed.

The convention chose not to nominate a candidate for VP, hoping that other conventions would endorse a similar platform and name a suitable VP nominee.
