On Sept. 1, 1952, Adlai E. Stevenson, the Democratic presidential nominee, shows his human side with the worn sole of a shoe. Stevenson was at a rally in Flint, Mich., with then-Gov. G. Mennen Williams. The shoe became a symbol of how down-to-earth Stevenson was -- an image that contrasted with his intellectual persona -- though it didn't help him in the election. Dwight Eisenhower beat him for the presidency. Photographer William M. Gallagher of the Flint Journal won the 1953 Pulitzer Prize for this photograph.
