Signature / Unsigned Photograph. Warren R. AUSTIN.

Signature / Unsigned Photograph.

The first U.S. ambassador to the United Nations (1946-53) also served as U.S. senator from Vermont. Signed envelope bearing a five-cent "Toward United Nations" stamp, 6½" X 3½", n.p., n.d. Very good. Addressee's pencilled address erased, but ever-so-slightly visible. Handsome signature at upper left. Not a first day cover, but cancelled in New York on November 21, 1946. Accompanied by a superb original black-and-white glossy 1947 news agency photograph (International News Photo), 8½" X 6½". Original mimeographed newsprint text sheet present and tipped to verso (as issued). Titled "Joint Armed Services Committee Hears Warren Austin," this vintage image shows a jovial Austin half-length at center examining a document, a legislator at each side. Text reads in part, "Warren Austin, member of the U.N. Security Council, conferred with Senate and House Armed Services Committee members in a close door session and recommended enactment of universal military training legislation...." A choice and desireable vintage photograph, itself scarce -- and relevant to the autograph item it accompanies. Item #27404

Price: $100.00
