[Twin Cities campus, University of Minnesota]: [Baker campaign for Minnesota Students Association], . 8.5x11 inch poster/handbill with a photo of Baker in jeans, button-up shirt - and high heel shoes. Fine condition.
Baker, a law student, won the election in what he hailed as a victory for "sophistication" among the student body. In 1970, Baker and his partner had applied for a marriage license in Minnesota, had been denied on grounds that two men could not marry, and challenged the decision in the courts with the result that they obtained the first known lawful same-sex marriage certificate in the United States in 1971, the same year as this election. Baker's campaign featured several humorous posters.
