Quick Overview

This is a sticker created for the gubernatorial campaign of Edmund "Pat" Brown in California. The sticker could be from any of his 3 campaigns (1958, 1962 or 1966) but I would assume it was not from the first (Because he was not yet the favorite son of California). The sticker is orange with black print which reads "Pat Brown California's Favorite". At the bottom of the sticker is the word Aldine to the left of the printer's mark, with the number 111 to the right of the printer's mark. I believe Aldine refers to the company Aldine Printing which would have produced the sticker back in the 1960s or late 1950s. The sticker is still in good condition as can be seen in the photographs, however there is some light dirt at some places along the edge of the sticker.

Edmund Gerald "Pat" Brown, Sr. (April 21, 1905 – February 16, 1996) was the 32nd Governor of California, serving from 1959 to 1967, and the father of current Governor of California Jerry Brown. In 1958, he was the Democratic nominee for Governor of California. He defeated U.S. Senator William F. Knowland by a margin of nearly 20 percentage points and a plurality of over 1 million votes. He was reelected in 1962, defeating former Vice President Richard Nixon by 52% to 47%. He lost the 1966 election to another future Republican President, Ronald Reagan. Reagan unseated Brown with 58%, winning a plurality of some 990,000 votes. Brown's two terms were marked by an enormous water-resources development program. The California Aqueduct built as part of the program now bears his name.
