PA Governor George H. Earle III (D) at His Train Car (1935)

Earle pushed the state legislature to consider so many bills, from workers’ rights and civil rights to construction projects and the revision of Blue Laws, that his agenda came to be known as "Pennsylvania’s Little New Deal." With Harrisburg being the seat of state government, much of the planning and administering of the Little New Deal occurred in Dauphin County.

Democratic control of the governorship lasted for only one term. Earle could not constitutionally run for a second term, and the Democratic Party was split in who should succeed him. Republican governors would hold office until 1955.
