FRANKLIN K. LANE - CLIPPED SIGNATURE - HFSID 26442

 
FRANKLIN K. LANE
Signature of Wilson's Secretary of the Interior
Signature: "Frank K. Lane", 4½x2. Ink note (unknown hand), July 15, leaves unclear whether this was an exact day of the month, or a month and year (1915). Franklin Knight Lane (1864-1921), born on Prince Edward Island, was a newspaper owner in San Francisco when, running as a Democrat, he narrowly lost races for California Governor (1902) and Mayor (1903), in what ways then a heavily Republican state. He served eight years on the Interstate Commerce Commission (1905-1913), investigating abuses by the express companies and successfully recommending to Congress that the US Post Office establish a parcel post. He served in President Wilson's Cabinet as Secretary of the Interior (1913-1920), presiding over creation of the National Park System. It was said of Lane that if he had been born a US citizen, he would have been a serious contender for the Presidency. Irregularly cropped on left edge. Lightly toned. Pencil note (in unknown hand) at top edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
