The long-time president of the International Pressmen and Assistants' Union of North America (1907-48) was appointed U.S. senator from Tennessee by that state's governor at the death of Senator Nathan L. Bachman in 1937 to complete his term, but served only until 1938, failing in his bid for election. Item #28824
Printed DS, 4pp (rectos only), 8" X 10½", n.p., 1936 December 12. Very good. Light even age toning; tiny staple hole at upper left corner of each, not affecting text. "Excerpts from speech of Major George L. Berry, Coordinator for Industrial Cooperation," a mimeographed press release intended "For Release / Morning Papers." In this NBC radio broadcast, Berry addresses President Roosevelt's Council for Industrial Progress. Huge, bold full signature (using what must have been an enormous-nibbed fountain pen) near the top of the first page. Most unusual in this format. A tremendous example from the height of his fame.
