Historic Overview

The Keystone Party (1910--1916) was a forerunner of the Progressive Party in PA. It was formed on 7/28/1910 to protest the control of the two major parties by political bosses. The appearance of the Washington Party (affiliate of the national Progressive Party) in PA divided the anti-boss voters, and the Keystone Party after 1912 tended only to endorse like-minded candidates from the major parties. Its last candidates ran in 1916.
