GENE TUNNEY. TLS: "Gene Tunney", 1p, 7¼x10½. New York, 1963 March 8. To Marshall. In part: "I hope you're getting along well. You have had a hard time of it and I have such a genuine feeling of sympathy for you. Keep up your courage, and remember what Henley said: 'It matters not how straight the fate; Or carved with punishment the scroll; For I am master of my fate; I am captain of my soul.' I know you will remain brave until this tragic affliction passes...." Gene Tunney (1897-1978) captured the world heavyweight boxing crown by defeating Jack Dempsey in a unanimous 10-round decision (1926), won a 10-round rematch after coming back from a controversial long count (1927), picked up one more easy purse and then retired (1928). The highly literate and articulate Tunney served on the boards of several corporations. During World War II, he was director of athletics and fitness for the U.S. Navy. His son John was a Senator from California (1971-1977). Fine condition.
