FRANK B. KELLOGG
Signature of the US Secretary of State who tried to outlaw war by treaty
Signature: "Frank B. Kellogg", 3¾x2¼. Frank B. Kellogg (1856-1937), President Calvin Coolidge's Secretary of State from 1925-1929, was awarded the 1929 Nobel Peace Prize for negotiating the Kellogg-Briand Peace Pact, an agreement signed in 1928 by 15 nations (later agreed to by 64 others) renouncing "war as an instrument of national policy". (In approving the Treaty, the US Senate passed an accompanying resolution declaring that the pact did not preclude the US from exercising its right of self-defense, nor did it obligate the US to take action against nations violating the treaty.) Kellogg had previously served as a Republican U.S. Senator from Minnesota (1917-1923) and U.S. Ambassador to Great Britain (1923-1925). Heavily toned. Small ink stain beneath signature. Fine condition.
