Signed, Herbert Hoover, Finnish Relief Fund Certificate (russo-finnish War 1939) For Sale

Signed, Herbert Hoover, Finnish Relief Fund Certificate (russo-finnish War 1939)

Very rare historical piece of American history before we got into WWII, plus a genuine signature of former President Hoover who served as the Committee Chairman. The Russo-Finnish War was between the USSR and Finland, the Soviets the naked aggressors. Though neutral, the US heavily sympathized with Finland, especially since Hitler and Stalin had signed a non-aggression pact in 1939. When Hitler turned on the USSR in 1940 all bets were off, and Russia would be our ally for four and half years, stealing just about everything that was nailed down in the period.The Finnish Relief Committee was formed to provide financial aid for Finland, Herbert Hoover the chairman. They raised a lot of money in the short window of history this relief fund existed.Issued to Otis T Wingo (Jr) who was the son of the late Otis T Wingo (d 1930) and Effiejean Wingo, both Congressmen from Arkansas, so hisroic in several ways. The signature of President Hoover has a known market value, but on such as rare document with historical value of its own (not many of these were ever presented, a few hundred at most) we can assume this to be an sale of first instance. 18 1/2 x 15 1/2 inches under glass, in original wood frame I'm almost certain, Exceptional find, acquired in Washington in private sale
