I'll start out with a few interesting maps from 1968.  Smiley


Note:  Page 39 of this thread has almost all of my nationwide congressional maps.  

Washington



Texas





Oklahoma





Data from the Almanacs of American Politics and The Atlas, except for the Texas CD map which came from http://www.tlc.state.tx.us/redist/pdf/congress_historical/c_1968_1970.pdf.

This looks great. Do you need any help with data collection in the Northeast?

In 1968, where was Barbara Jordan's district split between? I'm guessing it was in the 8th and 22nd.

Yes, that sounds about right. Maybe a little bit from the old 7th district as well.


Edit:  For those who don't know who Barbara Jordan is, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbara_Jordan.

Few comments

. Its interesting how Ford got 60% of the vote in Indiana 2, yet Floyd Fithian managed to hold on to the district for the rest of the decade until 1982 when Indiana went down one seat and they combined his seat with Elwood Hillis. He then ran for the senate and gave Dick Lugar his toughest race of his career.

. Also, its interesting how Ford lost the Indianapolis district. Mondale won the district in 1984. Of course, I think the black community was split up between the 11th and 6th districts.

. As for Arizona, how did Ford win Morris Udall's district. Dukakis won it 55-43.

Lastly, what was Ford's best district?
I remember hearing he won Texas 3 something like 72-28. He probably won Texas 7 by a lot too.

Back in the 70's, Mark Udall's district didn't contain the Democrati parts of Phoenix, which really delivered for Dukakis in 1988. Wink

Ford's best district was TX-7, which gave Ford 73% of the vote to Carter's 26%.

I thought that Wallace might have won the Texarkana district or the northern panhandle.

Wow Wallace did pretty good in Florida 1. I went on vacation to that area before and its a really scenic area. Its too bad that the area is basically an extension of the deep south.
