62 years ago...

From the Miami Sunday News, Oct. 2, 1949.

Perrine Palmer, Jr. and H. Leslie Quigg, candidates for the Miami city commission, take a "non-communist" oath on Oct. 2, 1949.

A little-known Florida law passed in 1949 required candidates for public office to swear they weren't communists.
