A. OAKEY HALL
A signature from Hall, singing "yrs ever"
Signature: "yrs ever/A. Oakey Hall", 4x1, cut from letter. Lightly stained, else fine condition. With unsigned captioned magazine illustration, b/w, 5¼x3¼ overall, image 5x3¼ (one surface). A. Oakey Hall (1826-1898), who was known as "Elegant Oakey", was Mayor of New York City from 1869-1872. Hall controlled the city without interference, as he was one of the "henchmen" of William A. "Boss" Tweed. The Tweed Ring, which also included City Comptroller Richard B. Connolly and City Chamberlain Peter B. Sweeny, defrauded the city and openly bought votes, encouraged judicial corruption and controlled New York City politics. Estimates of the amount of money lost to the Tweed Ring by New York City range from $30 million to $200 million. After leaving office, Hall, who had previously been the city's District Attorney before being hand selected as Mayor by Tweed, was an unsuccessful playwright before resuming his law practice. Irregularly cut. Fine condition.
