- Senator Dewey Johnson presents his reapportionment plan to fellow senators - Tallahassee, Florida
- Photographed on November 20, 1962.
- Accompanying note: "Sen. Dewey E. Johnson, left, of Quincy, former president of the Senate, talks up his modified plan of 46 senators, 144 house members, when a Senate committee earlier had been called off after the House for the second time yesterday ran into a stalemate over reapportionment. Left [to right] from Dewey are Sens. Ed H. Price, Bradenton; John McCarty, Fort Pierce; and John E. Mathews, Jr., of Jacksonville. The strategy behind Johnson's bill was claimed to make it more palatable to small-county house members resisting a large House with majority control strongly in the hands of the larger counties."
