Alton Brooks Parker (May 14, 1852 – May 10, 1926) was an American lawyer, judge and the Democratic nominee for U.S. president in the 1904 elections. Former U.S. Senator from West Virginia, Henry G. Davis was his running mate. Parker was supported by conservative Bourbon Democrats, like former President Grover Cleveland, alienated from the party idue to the radicalism of the party's nominee William Jennings Bryan on economic issues. It was hoped that Parker could be acceptable to both factions since he was "sound" on economic issues, but had supported Bryan in 1896 as a good party man. These hopes were frustrated, however, as Parker had little appeal to Bryanites and carried only the Solid South. Repro pub domain.
