HAROLD L. ICKES - TYPED LETTER SIGNED 10/24/1944 - DOCUMENT 26548

 
HAROLD L. ICKES
Typed Letter signed in 1944, complaining that newspapers are giving little coverage to Democratic campaign speeches, including his.
TLS: "Harold L. Ickes" as FDR's Secretary of the Interior, 1 page, 7x9. Washington, 1944 October 24. To Alden S. Condict, 1 East 42nd Street, New York. In full: "I was very glad to receive your congratulatory note of October 18, and to learn that you considered the remarks that I made in Newark on October 16 effective. I am not surprised to learn that you were unable to find the full address in any of the newspapers that you saw, for the papers are almost without exception giving very little space to the Democratic campaign speeches. A copy of my Newark address has already been mailed to you under separate cover pursuant to your request. [Item not included.] It was very generous of you to suggest that you might send me an item for my stamp collection, and I appreciate your kind thought." Harold L. Ickes (1874-1952), a Chicago journalist, lawyer and civic reformer, was local head of the NAACP. Originally a progressive Republican, he headed the Presidential campaign of Senator Hiram Johnson in 1924. Named by President Franklin Roosevelt as Secretary of the Interior, he served in that office throughout FDR's terms and into Truman's (1933-1946), the longest tenure of any Interior Secretary in history. In that office he oversaw much of the New Deal program. His son, Harold M. Ickes, also a veteran political activist, was Deputy Chief of Staff in the Clinton administration. Lightly soiled at lower blank margin and at upper blank right margin. Creased lower right corner. Overall, fine condition.
