Data SourcesOhio Elects the President, p. 52.
Description The date of this convention has not been given by the traditional sources (Kane, Havel, etc.). A search through the archives of the New York Times shows that the paper did not run a story on the convention. Phelps wrote his letter of acceptance of the convention's nomination on 7/31/1880 [NYT 8/1/1880], and an article on the party appeared in the paper on 8/9/1880, which would indicate a convention held prior to these dates.
