Description:
The 1920 Democratic National Convention was held at the Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, California from June 28 - July 6, 1920. It resulted in the nomination of Governor James Cox of Ohio for President and Assistant Secretary of the Navy Franklin Roosevelt of New York for Vice-President.

Neither President Woodrow Wilson, in spite of his failing health, nor former Secretary of State and three-time presidential candidate William Jennings Bryan had entirely given up hope that their party would turn to them, but neither was, in the event, formally nominated. In addition to the eventual nominee, Cox, the other high-scoring candidates as the voting proceeded were: Secretary of the Treasury William McAdoo and Attorney General Mitchell Palmer. On the forty-fourth ballot, Governor James M. Cox of Ohio was nominated for the Presidency.Pietrusza, David. 1920: The Year of the Six Presidents. New York, Carroll and Graf, 2007.

The platform adopted by the convention supported the League of Nations, albeit with qualifications, and women's suffrage.
