GIFFORD PINCHOT and CORNELIA BRYCE PINCHOT
Ink signatures of both on a purple cloth intended for use in a patchwork quilt
Signatures: "Gifford Pinchot", "Cornelia Bryce Pinchot", irregularly cut 4¼x3 purple cloth (originally intended for a patchwork quilt). Ink caption (unknown hand): "Governor/Penna". GIFFORD PINCHOT (1865-1946), the first professional American forester, served as Chief of the Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture (1898-1910), Professor of Forestry at Yale (1903-1936) and Governor of Pennsylvania (1923-1927, 1931-1935). During his government service, the number of national forests increased from 32 in 1898 to 149 in 1910. Pinchot and his close friend President Theodore Roosevelt made conservation a public issue and national policy. Today, a state park in Pennsylvania and a national forest in Washington State bear Pinchot's name. CORNELIA BRYCE PINCHOT (1881-1960) met Gifford while working on Teddy Roosevelt's Bull Moose campaign for President in 1912. They were married in 1914, with TR in attendance. Cornelia Pinchot was active in the suffrage movement, and was credited with having more political savvy and ambition than her husband. It was with her encouragement that he launched his first (unsuccessful) campaign for Governor in 1915. When he ran again 8 years later, she ran his campaign, bringing together a coalition which included newly enfranchised women and organized labor for an upset victory. Cornelia Pinchot herself ran for Congress unsuccessfully (1928). In her senior years she was a UN delegate and informal diplomatic envoy for President Truman. Slight bleeding of ink. Otherwise, fine condition.
