LEWIS B. SCHWELLENBACH - SIGNATURE(S) CIRCA 1945 - DOCUMENT 293490

 
LEWIS B. SCHWELLENBACH
Signature on a card affixed to a page with the original Department of Labor mailing envelope and a newspaper photo of Schwellenbach with President Truman
Signature: "L. B. Schweelenbach", 5x3 card with typed caption, affixed to a 8½x11 page with newspaper photo of signer with President Truman, and original Department of Labor mailing envelope, postmarked Washington, D.C., July 26, 1945. Lewis Baxter Schwellenbach (1894-1948) a Seattle lawyer with close ties to the labor movement, was elected to the US Senate as Democrat in 1934. A staunch supporter of the New Deal, he was appointed a federal district judge by FDR in 1940. Earlier that year, he had been one of the few nationally prominent Democrats to campaign for Harry Truman in a tough primary fight for re-nomination to the Senate. When Truman became President, he picked Schwellenbach for Secretary of Labor, a tough job in an era when pent-up wage demands after World War II triggered a wave of strikes, and when the Republican Congress passed the Taft-Hartley labor legislation over President Truman's veto. Schwellenbach served until his death. From the private collection of Ralph Errington Ward (1926-2009). Ward, a fighter pilot and squadron commander in the China-Burma-India Theater of World War II, went on to become President and CEO of Cheseborough-Ponds, Inc., transforming the cosmetics firm into a major home product conglomerate. Lightly toned at edges. Fine condition.
