Signature / Unsigned Photograph.

Secretary of agriculture under Truman (1945-48) and Democratic senator from New Mexico (1949-73). Bold signature in blue fountain pen, heavy stock 5" X 3" card, n.p., 1969 October 30. Fine. With original envelope. Accompanied by a superb vintage 8½" X 6½" glossy news agency photograph (International News Photo). Fine. Issued on 9 April 1947, this informal half-length shot depicts Commerce Secretary Averill Harriman, the chairman of the Economic Advisory Council and Agriculture Secretary Anderson chatting and smiling as they leave the White House. The original mimeographed caption sheet (usually absent, for printed on cheap newsprint) is still present and in superb condition, and captions this image: "Special Cabinet Meeting Weighs Rise in Prices," elaborating "President Truman met in a special meeting with his cabinet today and heard a full-dress discussion of the nation's economy, but no immediate government action to halt the rise of high prices was decided upon...." A scarce and desireable image. Item #31199

Price: $75.00
