Descripción:

"Jimmy," the eldest child of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, made a fortune in the insurance business as a young man, but when his father-President's right-hand man Louis Howe died in 1936, he stepped in and became the highly influential administrative assistant and later secretary to the president from 1936 to 1938; after a stint in the motion picture business in Hollywood he joined the war effort and rose to the rank of general in the Marine Corps, earning the Navy Cross and Silver Star during World War II for heroism; he was elected a Democratic representative from California (1955-66), and later penned several volumes about the Roosevelt family. TNS, 1p, 6¼" X 9¼", Washington, DC, 10 February 1937. Addressed to Arnold F. Gates (1914-93, noted Lincoln and Civil War scholar). Fine. On "The White House" letterhead, 29-year-old Roosevelt writes this gung-ho FDR supporter that "I. have pleasure in sending you herewith copies of the President's addresses, et cetera, which you requested. I have had your name placed on our mailing list and in the future you should receive these press releases regularly." Huge, bold signature in black ink. Accompanied by an outstanding glossy 10½" X 6 3/4" black and white news agency photograph (International News Photo) depicting President and Mrs. Roosevelt with his vice president and the whole smiling family standing on a train platform. Near fine and itself scarce. Original mimeographed paper label neatly affixed to verso titles this "President Returns from Southern Fishing Trip" and dates it 14 May 1937, describing the scene: "President Franklin D. Roosevelt is shown with members of his family on the back platform of the train on which he returned from a fishing trip in the Gulf of Mexico. In the group, left to right are, Elliott Roosevelt, the President's son holding his daughter Ruth Chandler Roosevelt, Mrs. Elliott Roosevelt, Vice-President John Nancy Garner, President Roosevelt, his wife, Mrs. James Roosevelt and Mr. James Roosevelt, son of the President." An exceptional and early pair, the photograph taken three months after the writing of this letter. N° de ref. de la librería

Descripción This versatile and influential economist was the nation's youngest tenured full professor by age 28 (that’s right, TWENTY-EIGHT!) at Amherst College; he served under presidents Roosevelt, Truman and Eisenhower in economic advisory positions domestic and international; in 1947-48 he served as an alternate delegate at the United Nations General Assembly; but it is for helping draft the Marshall Plan that he is best remembered. TNS, 1p, 8½" X 11", Amherst, MA, 1930 May 14. Addressed to Mary B. Day. Very good. Faintly age toned. On letterhead of Amherst College Department of Economics, the extraordinarily youthful prof sends the librarian at Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry (not present) "two copies of my article entitled 'HORSEPOWER STATISTICS FOR MANUFACTURERS' in accordance with your request." Small but bold and handsome full signature. This exceptionally early example is accompanied by a choice unsigned 10" X 8" glossy news agency photograph (International News Photo), a closeup depicting Thorp smiling over a document with another smiling fellow, the caption beneath reading in part: "Financial negotiations between the governments of Italy and the United States to resolve the outstanding financial questions arising out of the war and which were not definitively settled by the Treaty of Peace are now approaching a conclusion. Pictured at a State Department meeting are. Ivan Matteo Lombardo, heading the Italian Delegation and Willard L. Thorp, Asst. Secretary of State for the U.S." Near fine, dated in caption "6/17/47." Quite unusual image and even more unusually early Thorp document. Nº de ref. de la librería 39349

Descripción Secretary of War Harry H. Woodring's Assistant Secretary of War (1937-40) felt betrayed when President Roosevelt didn't appoint him to the cabinet after Woodring's resignation in 1940 -- but when President Truman's first Secretary of Defense (James V. Forrestal) resigned in 1948 he became this country's second Secretary of Defense in 1949, only serving until 1950, when he resigned and paved the way for the illustrious George C. Marshall. TNS, 1p, 7" X 9", Washington, DC, 1938 March 29. Addressed to Arnold F. Gates (1914-93), noted Lincoln and Civil War scholar. Very good. On "The Assistant Secretary of War" letterhead, Johnson transmits to an admirer "a copy of my Armistice Day speech at Arlington." Boldly signed in blue ink. Accompanied by a superb glossy 9" X 7" black and white news agency photograph depicting President Truman seated at a large table with four others and five standing behind. Original mimeographed paper label neatly affixed to verso, dated 12 February 1950, titles this scene "President Hears Report from Joint Chiefs" and describes it: "The Joint Chiefs of Staff, who returned Friday night from an inspection of the Far East. are shown as they reported to President Truman and defense department heads at the White House yesterday." Johnson is seated next to a smiling Truman. A fine pair. Nº de ref. de la librería 40786

Descripción Harlan Stone's successor as chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court (1946-53) was known as a strong liberal and a civil rights champion; previously, he served as a Kentucky representative and as treasury secretary under Truman. TNS, 1p, 8" X 10½", Washington, DC, 1924 February 18. Addressed to A.N. Marquis & Co. Very good.

Typed draft of Vinson's brief "Who's Who" entry, bearing one hand-printed correction, quite likely (but not conclusively) in Vinson's hand. Comes with a fine 8½" X 6½" glossy news agency photograph (International News Photo) of 1947 showing Vinson as chief justice administering the oath of office to the new U.S. Solicitor General while Attorney General Tom Clark observes.

Descripción The U.S. Army's youngest major general when he attained that rank in 1925, this controversial officer was named Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army in 1930; during World War Two he became commander of the U.S. Army Forces in the Far East and then Supreme Commander of the Southwest Pacific Area; he officially accepted Japan's surrender on September 2, 1945 aboard the U.S.S. Missouri; during the Korean War President Truman removed him from the United Nations Command in 1951. TNS, 1p, 8" X 10", New York, NY, 1953 February 6. Addressed to Joseph C. Chase. Very good. Faintly age toned, with two faint original folds. On plain stationery with his typed 90 Church Street address, the general sends this cordial note of thanks to an admirer for birthday wishes. Bold full signature in black ink at the close. Accompanied by a fine glossy 6¼" X 7 3/4" black and white news agency photograph (International News Photos), a candid closeup of MacArthur in civilian garb -- overcoat, silk scarf, hat. Caption at bottom dates it 25 January 1955 and describes the scene as "A striking closeup of General Douglas MacArthur just before he flew from New York today to celebrate his 75th birthday in Los Angeles tomorrow. California dignitaries and a million plain citizens are expected to greet the famous soldier, who is making his first visit to the city in 18 years. Part of the birthday celebration will be the unveiling of a monument in the general's honor at MacArthur Park in downtown Los Angeles." A nice letter with appropriate image.
