Descripción

Bank note printed card with the text of "The American's Creed", with attractive flag motif band behind a gilt eagle encircled in green laurels. It is mounted with a fold out "Story of the American's Creed", in a self-mailer envelope. The American's Creed was written in 1917 by William Tyler Page and adopted by the U.S. House of Representatives the next year (much like the Pledge of Allegiance, the American's Creed reflects the American nationalism that became popular after the Civil War). The American's Creed was a result of a nationwide contest for writing a National Creed, which would be a brief summary of the American political faith founded upon things fundamental in American history and tradition. The contest was the idea of Henry Sterling Chapin, Commissioner of Education of New York State. Over three thousand entries were received, and William Tyler Page was declared to be the winner. Page was related to a signer of the Declaration of Independence, Carter Braxton and John Tyler, the 10th president of the United States. William Tyler Page served in the Capitol Building as a page and later clerk of the House, for over 60 years. 5 3/8 x 13 3/8" when opened, the card 5 3/8 x 4". Outside of one panel with some light speckles o/w very good condition. N° de ref. de la librería 19510
