Weather Report

“The weather was clear all across Massachusetts and New England, perfect for voting as far as the crest of the Alleghenies. But from Michigan through Illinois and the Northern Plains states it was cloudy: rain in Detroit and Chicago, light snow falling in some states on the approaches of the Rockies. The South was enjoying magnificently balmy weather which ran north as far as the Ohio River; so, too, was the entire Pacific Coast.The weather and the year’s efforts were to call out the greatest free vote in the history of this or any other country.”

—Theodore H. White(The Making of the President, 1960)
