Biographical / Historical

The 1992 Republican national convention was held at the Astrodome in Houston, Aug. 17-20, culminating in the nomination of hometown favorite George H.W. Bush for president and Dan Quayle for vice-president. It featured Ronald Reagan's last major public address, a fiery oration by Pat Buchanan, and an address by HIV activist Mary Fischer. Numerous local volunteers were instrumental before, during, and after the convention to be sure the events proceeded smoothly and that the delegates' needs were met.
