GEORGE WILLIAM CURTIS
Handwritten sentiment of the reform-minded editor, on his personal stationery
Autograph Sentiment signed: "With very great/pleasure/George William Curtis". 4x5¼. West New Brighton, Staten Island, N. Y., 1873 November 6. George William Curtis (1824-1892) was the lead editorial writer (1857) and then editor of "Harper's Weekly" (1863). He was in favor of emancipation, equal rights for African-Americans, Native Americans and women, and of civil service reform, public education and environmental conservation. A lifelong Republican, Curtis refused to support his party's nominee of 1884, Senator James Blaine. In a "Harper's" editorial, Curtis summarized the three reasons why he and Independents opposed Blaine so vehemently: 1) his involvement in various scandals; 2) his imperialist foreign policy; and 3) his record as a spoils man who resisted civil service reform and reform in general. Curtis presided at a New York meeting of reform-minded Republicans, subsequently nicknamed "Mugwumps", who broke with their party to support Cleveland, the first Democratic President elected since the Civil War. Mailing fold through center. Lightly toned. Fine condition.
