RAYMOND J. DONOVAN. First Day Cover signed: "Raymond J Donovan", 6½x3¾. FDC honoring Organized Labor, 15-cent stamp affixed, postmarked Washington, DC, September 1, 1980, FIRST DAY OF ISSUE. Raymond J. Donovan served as President Ronald Reagan's Secretary of Labor from February 4, 1981-March 15, 1985, when he resigned due to an investigation into Donovan's ties with organized crime and bribery of a union official. The investigation of Donovan, who had been vice president of a construction company in his home state of New Jersey when he was named Secretary of Labor, had first ended in 1982 without any charges being brought, but was resumed in 1985 after allegations that Donovan had given false testimony to a grand jury. The second investigation, which ended in 1988, again resulted in no charges being brought against Donovan. Slightly creased. Lightly soiled on verso. Fine condition.
