The 1937 Conservative Manifesto (also called An Address to the People of the United States) was a series of policies proposed in response to the excesses of the New Deal. A bi-partisan agreement among Northern Republicans and some conservative Southern Democrats (who were known as "Boll Weevils"), it was mostly authored by Democrat Josiah Bailey (who was an advocate for fiscal conservatism and the free market) and Republican Arthur H. Vandenberg.[1]
