Taylor Pensoneau - General Interest

​St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter Taylor Pensoneau was in Chicago for the 1968 Democratic Convention which occurred from August 26 through August 29. He was on the scene for many of that convention's most dramatic events, reporting on events both inside the convention center and on the rioting in the streets, especially in Grant Park. Pensoneau was on hand when the Yippies nominated a pig for president, when Senator Abe Ribicoff accused Mayor Daley of using Gestapo tactics against protesters, and for the violent outbursts between the protesters and the Chicago police on Wednesday night, August 28.
