HOOVER, HERBERT - Framed TLS re 36 election

Lot 0098 Details

Description
HOOVER, HERBERT
    Thirty-first President of the United States (1874-1964, served 1929-33); served as the country was overtaken by the Great Depression; overwhelmingly defeated for re-election; a mining engineer, he earlier served as U.S. Food Administrator and Secretary of Commerce. Interesting content Typewritten Letter Signed, "Herbert Hoover," 1 page, small 4to, on stationery imprinted with his name, no place, September 2, 1935. To journalist and Republican stalwart Henry L. Stoddard in New York, he writes, "I was greatly interested in your note. It should be given to the public. Incidentally, I never made the statement attributed to me by some Herald-Tribune scribbler that 'the candidate must come out of the West.' He may come out of New England." Matted under glass with a color portrait and facsimile signature and held in a wooden frame, 13.25" x 16.25" overall size. Paper clip stain at upper left, soiling especially at top, otherwise in very good condition. The Republican candidate to unseat President Franklin Roosevelt in the 1936 election did indeed come from the West - Alf Landon of Kansas. It availed him little, as Roosevelt won by over 10 million votes and an astonishing 531 electoral votes to Landon's 8.
