Alben Barkley Autograph Vice President Harry Truman 1949-53 Died-1956:
ALBEN BARKLEY AUTOGRAPH ATTACHED TO 3X5Autograph originates from a 1932 "Waterman's" Autograph Book. For six months in the early 1930's the Waterman fountain pen company ran a contest for boys and girls. Each entrant was instructed how to write to and obtain signatures of various notables of the day and send it to the company to qualify for a prize. The book that this autograph originates from was sold intact in January 2012 and once belonged to a young man named William Tierney of Weston West Virginia. There was a total of over 300 autographs that had been clipped and attached in his book. This is one of those signatures, I will be offering more outstanding signatures from the collection on in the upcoming weeks. Comes with a detailed letter of provenance that accompanied the original book when it was sold. William Barkley (November 24, 1877– April 30, 1956) was a lawyer and politician from Kentucky who served in both houses of Congress and as the 35th Vice President of the United States from 1949 to 1953. In 1905, he was elected county attorney for McCracken County, Kentucky. He was chosen county judge in 1909 and U.S. Representative from Kentucky's First District in 1912. As a Representative, he was a liberal Democrat, supporting President Woodrow Wilson's New Freedom domestic agenda and foreign policy.
