1897 · New York
The event was favorably reviewed in The Tammany Times for March 22, 1897 [page 6]. The New York Bimetallic Association was a Democratic Party organization urging an expansionary monetary policy by the free coinage of silver. "Gold standard money has reduced hundreds of thousands of industrious Americans to penury." The speakers, the best known of whom was several-time Democratic presidential candidate William Jennings Bryan, were outspoken advocates of the policy, a major political issue in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
