The Campaign of 1952; Lessons for the future from one of the most successful independent political movements in U.S. history

by Stanley M. Rumbough, Jr
co-founder, Citizens for Eisenhower.

In June, 1951, Charles F. Willis, Jr. and Stanley M. Rumbough, Jr.—two former WWII Naval fighter pilots with no political experience or contacts— were frustrated with what they saw as “that mess in Washington” and were convinced that General of the Army Dwight D. Eisenhower was the ideal 1952 candidate for President of the United States. They did not know whether he was Republican or Democrat, had never communicated with the General, and were so naive that they didn’t even know how candidates were nominated.

But they made it work. Within eight months, self-funded, with no help from the Republican Party, they had thousands of supporters active in 800 “Eisenhower for President Clubs” in 38 states. But by then, other movements in support of Eisenhower had begun, and Charlie and Stan had about run out of money.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR Gil Robinson, as Special Assistant to the Secretary of Commerce, was the youngest member of the Eisenhower Administration. Over the years following, he served in jobs as varied as Chairman of the New York Board of Trade (in which he led the first business delegation from the U.S. to China) and Deputy Director of the U.S Information Agency (USIA). President Ronald Reagan appointed him Ambassador and
Special Advisor to the Secretary of State.


President George H. W. Bush: "I liked Ike because like most (if not all) World War II veterans, President Eisenhower was a hero of mine."

Judge William Webster, Former Director of the FBI and of the CIA: "Helps explain Ike's enduring greatness."

Tom Brokaw, Author, The Greatest Generation: "Gil Robinson reminds us how great Ike was in war and peace. Where are the 21st century Eisenhowers?

Dr. David M. Abshire, President, Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress: "A delightful account that explains in a vivid way why Americans like Ike."

ABOUT THE EISENHOWER MEMORIAL: In 1999, the Congress created an "Eisenhower Memorial Commission," with a charter to formulate plans for an "appropriate permanent memorial" to perpetuate the memory and contributions of General and President Dwight D. Eisenhower. This will be only the seventh national presidential memorial in U. S. history. The Commission has selected world-renowned architect Frank Gehry to design the Memorial on a four-acre site—between 4th and 6th Streets SW, across from the National Air & Space Museum in Washington, DC.
