SIR NORMAN ANGELL - AUTOGRAPH ENVELOPE UNSIGNED - HFSID 142855

 
NORMAN ANGELL
Angell handwrote the address on this envelope, postmarked in 1932 in New York City, to a Mrs. Wainwright of Scranton, Pennsylvania. This was postmarked the year after he was knighted and the year before he received the Nobel Peace Prize.
Autograph envelope unsigned. 7½x3¾. Red 2ยข George Washington stamp affixed, postmarked Grand Central Annex (New York City), New York, February 10, 1932. Addressed to "Mrs Wainwright/912 Clay Avenue/Scranton/Pa." This envelope was postmarked the the year after Angell was knighted and before he received the Nobel Prize for Peace. Angell maintained a fairly sizable correspondence with this unidentified "Mrs. Wainwright", who would often open her home to him when he was in the Scranton, Pennsylvania area. In 1910, British journalist Angell (1872-1967, born Ralph Norman Angell-Lane in Holbeach, Lincolnshire, England) rose to fame with The Great Illusion, in which he reasoned that the common economic interests of nations make war futile. Knighted in 1931, Angell was awarded the 1933 Nobel Peace Prize. He also invented the Money Game, which were card games designed to teach its players about currency and credit. He continued to write and lecture into the 1950s. Lightly toned, soiled and creased. Stained at blank left edge. Torn open at top with small tears in top edge. Otherwise in fine condition.
