SHERMAN "THE ICEBERG" ADAMS - INSCRIBED PHOTOGRAPH SIGNED - DOCUMENT 273341

 

SHERMAN ADAMS. Photograph inscribed and signed: "For Danny/Franklin/Sherman Adams". B/w, 5x7. Slightly creased at blank margins and corners. Minor surface creases (most not evident head on), some at facial image. Overall, fine condition. Accompanied by calling card, unsigned, 3½x2. Imprinted: "Sherman Adams/Governor of/New Hampshire". At upper margin, Adams has inscribed the card: "For Danny Franklin". Beneath imprinted title, Adams has written his dates of service: "1949-1953". Slightly creased at upper corners. Fine condition. Sherman Adams (1899-1986), who was the Republican Governor of New Hampshire from 1949-1953, was President Dwight D. Eisenhower's Chief of Staff from 1953-1958. Overseeing a staff that reached a record 446 in 1959, Adams became the second most powerful man in the government. All presidential orders were directed through him, and Adams supervised the preparation of one-page summaries of news reports and policy papers for the President. Adams was accused of accepting gifts from Boston textile executive Bernard Goldfine, who was being investigated for Federal Trade Commission violations. On August 13, 1958, Goldfine was cited for contempt of Congress when he refused to answer questions regarding his relationship with Adams. Bowing to increasing political pressure, President Eisenhower asked Adams to resign, which he did on September 22, 1958. Goldfine eventually received a prison sentence for his role in corrupt regulatory practices. Two items.
