It's still worth checking the running time of the disc set you have
against recordings of the same event that might be at the National
Archives or other sources, since they might contain more material.

I noticed that at Goldin's website, in the listings for Franklin
Roosevelt, there are a few recordings from the convention that
survive.  FDR's acceptance speech runs 18 minutes in his listing - if
your set has 12" discs running at 78 rpm, they potentially have up to
four or five minutes on each side, so they might include some of the
commentary and action before and after the speech.
