New Haven County

To The Editor:

In his article “The Return of Two-Party Politics” (March 1956), Samuel Lubell states erroneously that New Haven was won by President Eisenhower in his 1952 landslide.

Actually, New Haven was carried in the presidential election of 1952 by Stevenson with 45,990 votes against Eisenhower’s 39,952.

Mr. Lubell writes:

“New Haven” was an error: it should have read “New Haven County.”
