Benjamin Harrison Autograph Document Signed

Lot 0064 Details

Description
Unusual partly-printed ADS, one page, 8 x 13, September 20, 1886. Application for life insurance with the New-York Life Insurance Company, filled out in Harrison's hand and signed twice (once on the front and once on the reverse, which is covered by the framing). Harrison fills out the questionnaire with personal information including his occupation ("Attorney at Law, U.S. Senator"), propensity to drink intoxicating beverages ("rarely ever at all"), and residency of the past ten years ("either at Indianapolis, Ind., or Washington D.C."). The upper portion of the document indicates that the $10,000 policy was paid out in January 1902, following Harrison's death in March 1901. Nicely matted and framed with a silver print of Harrison from the Frederick H. Meserve Collection to an overall size of 12 x 21. In very good condition, with overall toning and creasing, and a couple of small tears.
