The first local convention of the Progressive Party, known as the "Bull Moose Party," met in Evanston's Avenue House with propietor, Norman Ross on hand. The purpose of the meeting was to choose five delegates from Evanston to attend the state convention in Chicago. The meeting was called by Harry Nightingale who aspires to replace William E. Anderson as the Bull Moose leader, and who sat with Dr. William T. McElveen to make sure anyone attending the meeting signed the pledge. Delegates chosen were Harry Nightingale, E. M. Board, Harold Ickes, William S. Mason, and George P. "Carnation George" Engelhard. African Americans in attendance were upset that they did not have a delegate to represent their interests.
