Signature. Homer S. CUMMINGS.


This attorney and Democratic political figure served three-times as mayor of Stamford, Connecticut, and became Franklin Roosevelt's first attorney general, serving from 1933 to 1939; he transformed and modernized law enforcement in the Justice Department and acted as a staunch ally to FDR in his "New Deal" programs. Item #40783

Bold handsome signature in blue ink on a heavy stock 5" X 3" card, n.p., typed date December 1933 at lower left. Fine. As was his department's habit, the words "AUTOGRAPH OF" are typed at upper left and he signs at center just above a typed "ATTORNEY GENERAL OF THE UNITED STATES." A superb early example from early in his cabinet member tenure.

Price: $40.00
