Sale Price $126.00
Rare signature from the author on letterhead from the New York Herald Tribune, signing with the surname "Lewis" from her marriage to Nobel Prize winning author Sinclair Lewis
Signature: "Dorothy Thompson Lewis", in black ink, 5¾x7¾. In 1939, Time magazine rated journalist DorothyThompson (1893-1961, born in Lancaster, New York) as the second-most influential woman in the United States; the first was Eleanor Roosevelt. One of her first journalistic coups was, in a twisted way, a reporter's dream come true, when Adolf Hitler kicked her out of Germany in 1934 for her reportage of Nazi Germany, making her the first American reporter to be expelled from that country. Back in the states, she began writing the newspaper column On the Record for The New York Herald, which was eventually syndicated in 170 papers. Thompson was married three times: first to Hungarian writer Joseph Bard from 1923 to 1927, second to Nobel Prize winner Sinclair Lewis from 1928 to 1942, and third to artist Maxim Kopf from 1945 to 1958. Normal mailing folds. Lightly toned. Slight surface creases. Fine condition.
