BERNARD M. BARUCH - AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED 3/6 - DOCUMENT 31630
 
BERNARD M. BARUCH
Letter asking to be remembered to painter Rockwell Kent, who had once made an etching of Baruch's estate
Autograph Letter Signed: "B.M. Baruch", 1p, 6½x7½. Kingstree, S.C., Little Hobcaw, no year but probably 1964, March 6th. To Mr. (H. Keith) Thompson. In full: "I have an etching by [Rockwell] Kent of my former place Hobcaw Barony. I have not seen him in years. He is only a teenager at 81. I never review books - if I did it would be an endless undertaking. I hope he does well. Please remember me to him. He is a fine artist." Artist ROCKWELL KENT was born on June 21, 1882, so he would have still been 81 if Baruch wrote this letter on March 6, 1964; he died in 1971. U.S. financier Bernard M. Baruch (1870-1965), who made his fortune on Wall Street, became an influential adviser to U.S. Presidents from Woodrow Wilson to Lyndon B. Johnson. During his later years, Baruch's "presidential advisory post" was a park bench in Lafayette Square, across from the White House. Wilson had appointed Baruch to the Advisory Commission of the Council of National Defense in 1916. In April 1917, after the U.S. entered WWI (1914-1918), Baruch served as Chairman of the War Industries Board. In 1919, he represented the U.S. on the Supreme Economic Council at the Versailles Peace Conference. With the onset of WWII, Baruch advised Roosevelt on wartime economic mobilization. After the War (1939-1945), he sat on the United Nations Atomic Energy Commission. Baruch proposed the Baruch Plan for international development and control of atomic energy. Baruch had begun working on Wall Street after graduating from the College of the City of New York in 1889. Speculating in the stock market, he became a millionaire by age 30. His alma mater named its business school for Baruch in 1953. Baruch published his memoirs in two volumes, Baruch: My Own Story (1957) and Baruch: The Public Years (1960). Fine condition.
