DWIGHT H. GREEN
He invites an associate to a government luncheon.
Typed Letter signed: "Dwight H. Green", as Governor of Illinois.1 page, 8¼x10½. Springfield, Illinois, March 26, 1943. On official letterhead of the state of Illinois Executive Chamber, ToMr. Paul Wurtzel, Assistant Secretary, Freeport Chamber of Commerce, Freeport, Illinois, in full: "On April 2 and 3 there will be held in Chicago the Mid-West Regional Conference of the Council of the State Governments which will be attended by Governors and their official staffs from seventeen states. The conference will conclude on Saturday, April 3, with a luncheon at the Palmer House honoring the distinguished delegation of Governors, given by the Illinois Chamber of Commerce and the Chicago Association of Commerce. U.S. Senator Guy M. Gillette will be the guest speaker. Both organizations will contact you direct regarding reservations. As Governor of Illinois and host to our distinguished delegation, I am especially anxious that this luncheon be part of the state. Accordingly, I should like to extend to you my personal invitation to attend the luncheon, and express the hope that you will join with me in this program which I am certain will be helpful to all of us in this critical period. Sincerely yours"." Dwight Herbert Green (1897-1958) was an American Republican politician who served as the Governor of Illinois from 1941 to 1949. Born in Ligonier, Indiana, Green studied law at the University of Chicago, later becoming the United States Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois (1931-1935). He was especially determined to crack down on organized gang criminals, specifically Al Capone whom he and 4 additional prosecutors brought down for tax evasion in 1931. Green, who was a very popular governor, likely lost his chances for reelection due to the Centralia mine disaster of 1947 in which (due to his negligence) 111 miners were killed. Lightly toned around edges. Normal mailing folds. Otherwise, fine condition.
