SIR NORMAN ANGELL - TYPED LETTER SIGNED 2/4 - HFSID 72950

 
NORMAN ANGELL
Letter typed on stationery from New York City's Commodore Hotel and signed by Angell. In it, he accepts an offer for lodging with a Mrs. Wainwright in Scranton, Pennsylvania, an invitation he hadn't been able to accept until then due to illness
Typed letter signed "Norman Angell". 1 page, 5 ½x8¼, on stationery of the Commodore Hotel of New York City. Dated "Feb. 4". Addressed to "Mrs. Wainwright". 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. He wrote this during a lecture tour. In it, he says that he needed to fulfill an engagement in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania and would thus be able to accept her invitation to stay at her home (which he hadn't been able to accept until then to illness). 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 and creased. Folded twice and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition.
