Ejemplar firmado: Signed by Author(s)
Secretary of the Interior (1949-53) under Harry S. Truman. Full signature in blue ballpoint, heavy stock 5" X 3" card, n.p., 1971 November 29 (typed). Fine. Beneath his signature, Chapman has typed in a little mini-biography: "Assistant Secretary of the Interior May 4, 1933 / Succeeded to Under Secretary / Succeeded to Secretary of the Interior." With original envelope. Accompanied by a superb original black-and-white glossy 1953 news agency photograph (International News Photo), 9" X 7". Original mimeographed newsprint text sheet present and tipped to verso (as issued). Titled "Washington Conference," this vintage image shows Chapman seated at a desk with another gentleman, poring over an open notebook. Text reads, "With inauguration day moving ever closer, key men in the Eisenhower administration-to-be have been conferring with men in the Truman administration whose posts they will take over. Governor Douglas MacKay. the Secretary of Interior-designate, is shown in conference with Interior Secretary Oscar Chapman in Washington yesterday." A choice, desireable vintage photograph, itself scarce. N° de ref. de la librería 27411
