The wife of 31st President of the United States Herbert Hoover, he by profession a geologist and mining engineer and her a formidable scholar and linguist, served as First Lady from 1929 to 1933. Item #43983
Handsome full signature in brown ink on a heavy stock 3½" X 2¼" card bearing an imprinted "Stanford University, California" along the top. Near fine. Though undated, certainly from the post-presidential years when the Hoovers returned to their Stanford residence up until her death. Accompanied by a superb original 6½" X 8½" news agency black and white photograph depicting the President and First Lady Hoover full length walking through a train station, with original printed caption (dated 7 January 1933) mounted on verso reading, under the headline "Arrive for Coolidge Funeral": "President and Mrs. Hoover arriving at Northampton, Mass., for the funeral of the late Calvin A. Coolidge today...." Fine. A great signature example and most unusual vintage photograph.
