Letter of March 12, 1932, to Mr. E. Maltby Shipp, Chairman, Newburgh Bicentennial Commission acknowledging an invitation to attend the bicentennial celebration and promising a definite answer at a later date.
FDR (1882-1945) was Governor of NY from January 1, 1929 through December 31, 1932 (two terms). Roosevelt was already the leading Presidential candidate of the Democrats by the time this letter was signed. He was nominated at the Democratic National Convention in June.
He would be elected President later in 1932 and take office March 4, 1933(on what was perhaps the worst point in the Great Depression - when unemployment stood at 25%, and the District of Columbia and 32 of the 48 States had closed their banks). He would see the country out of the Depression, through WWII, and be elected President three more times.CONDITION: Very Good or better. Light soiling to the back. Light age-browning to the edges of the front, a trace of edge wear, and gilt on the embossed emblem slightly faded. Please zoom in on the photos, and do not hesitate to contact us with questions.
