A. LEE M. WIGGINS. TLS: "ALM Wiggins.", 1p, 8½x11. Hartsville, South Carolina, 1974 October 30. On his personal imprinted letterhead to Mr. Danny Franklin, Phoenix, Arizona. In full: "I appreciate your request for autograph and photo, as well as your carefully written letter reviewing my career and your comments. Your meticulous handwriting is evidence of your patience and careful workmanship. You do not tell me anything about yourself. I would be interested in knowing your present occupation, your background, history, etc., and something about your interest in accumulating autographs and photographs. After I hear from you, I will be glad to send you a photograph. The autograph is my signature to this letter. Best wishes to you. Sincerely". Archibald Lee Manning Wiggins (1891-1980) was a South Carolina businessman who began his career with J.L Coker and Company, which owned a large, modern department store as well as several farms and was involved in cotton buying and selling. In 1919, Wiggins became Secretary of J.L. Coker and Company and the Coker Cotton Company, and he became Secretary and Treasurer of the Pedigreed Seed Company from 1920. In 1921, Wiggins organized the Trust Company of South Carolina, becoming its Vice President, Managing Director and President. He was also the President of the Bank of Hartsville, and Wiggins purchased the "Hartsville Messenger", serving as President of the South Carolina Press Association during his tenure as publisher. Wiggins also served on the Boards of a number of companies, including railroads, and he was active in community and charitable organizations, including the Hartsville Chamber of Commerce, the Rotary Club and Coker College (Wiggins was a Trustee for some 30 years). In 1944, he was appointed as Under Secretary of the Treasury by President Harry S Truman. Wiggins served for six months before resigning to become a special assistant to Secretary of the Treasury John Snyder, remaining in that position for almost six years. Lightly creased with folds, not at signature. Fine condition.
