Sale Price $180.00
Inscribed photo of the animal rights activist with Polar Bear, "the cat who came for Christmas."
Photograph inscribed and signed: "For the/Sussmans/With best wishes/Cleveland Amory". B/w, 8x10. Cleveland Amory (1917-1998) was an editor at Saturday Evening Post, a critic for TV guide, and a frequent guest on NBC's Today Show. In 1967 he resigned from the board of the Humane Society of the United States, believing its policies to be too cautious, and formed his own group, the Fund for Animals. He was President of the New England Anti Vivisection Society for over 30 years. In his books about his cat Polar Bear, rescued from the New York streets on Christmas Eve, and other writings, he championed animal rights. He recruited many celebrities for his campaign against the wearing of fur. Although not an organizer of the even more militant PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), he expressed sympathy for that group's "direct action" campaigns on behalf of animals. Today, the Humane Society and Fund for Animals jointly support the Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch, an animal sanctuary in Texas. Fine condition.
