Franklin Roosevelt-Signed Letter-Historic Content
Item #: NEW-0015068

Click image to enlarge
No paypal on this item though payment plans are available.

This listing is for a letter signed by Franklin Roosevelt addressed to his party whip, Representative J Percy Priest, dated December 9, 1944.  He is responding to Priestís suggestion that he request the Board of Directors of the Tennessee Valley Authority to make a survey of the Cumberland Valley and, on the basis of such survey, to prepare a report to him as well as the Congress seeking  proposals to extend the jurisdiction of the TVA to the Cumberland Valley.

The Cumberland Valley is a northern constituent valley of the Great Appalachian Valley, within the Atlantic Seaboard watershed in Pennsylvania and Maryland. The Appalachian Trail crosses through the valley.

This letter appears to have historic content involving the wishes and FDR and Percy Priest of Tennessee that TVA be extended outside of Tennessee.  Perhaps this would have been achieved if Roosevelt had not died.  More research is needed on this proposal which never was accomplished.

There is stain from a paper clip at the top edge.  Some age toning.

Elmwood Indiana One Day Event for Wendell Willkie-Article
Item #: NEW-0014235

Click image to enlarge
When I spotted scan #1 in an antique mall I thought it was some kind of interesting poster.  When I bought it and took it out of the holder I realized that it was an article, most likely from Life Magazine.  Still I was struck with the interesting photographs so hopefully it will strike a cord with a Willkie collector.  The campaign items I mention may or may not be shown in the scans as the pages were much larger than my scanner.  In the first photo one can see a poster I have never seen before.  Shows Willkie and reads Welcome Home Wendell Willkie.  There is a large circular portrait and two smaller ones It could be a 3-D portrait with a banner.  The second scan shows Willkie looking a little crazy with an overwhelming crowd.  A person in the car is wearing a Wilkie button. The third scan shows a plethora of one of a kind signs, some of which I hope are in collector's hands.
