He signs a typed 1913 letter concerning his address to the Economic Club dinner.
Typed Letter signed: "F. A. Vanderlip", 1 page, 8¼x10¼. New York, N.Y., 1913 November 15. On his letterhead as President of the National City Bank of New York to John D. Carberry, United States Rubber Co., New York, N.Y. In full: "I thank you for your courteous letter of yesterday, and have taken pleasure in sending you several copies of my address at the Economic Club dinner. [Items not included.] I am very glad that you found it interesting. Very truly yours." As Assistant Secretary of the Treasury (1897-1901), Frank A. Vanderlip (1864-1937) arranged the financing of the Spanish American War. Thereafter, he became Vice President and then President (1909-1919) of National City Bank of New York (now Citibank). In 1910 he was a member of the Jekyll Island Group which drafted the proposal which Congress later enacted as the Federal Reserve system. He also became President of the Economic Club of New York (1917). In November 1913, the month in which he signed this letter, Vanderlip organized a consortium of wealthy New Yorkers to fund the Palos Verdes Project, developing and marketing real estate on the Palos Verdes Peninsula south of Los Angeles. File holes at upper and left margin. Fold creases, not near signature. Otherwise, fine condition.
