FRANK LICHT The Governor of Rhode Island signed this card marked with the seal of the state, accompanied by an unsigned 8x10 photograph Printed Card signed in Ink "Frank Licht" as Governor, 5¼x3¼. Governor's card bearing seal of the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations. Accompanied by unsigned photo of signer (b/w, 8x10). Frank Licht (1916-1987) was elected Governor of Rhode Island (1969-1973) as a Democrat, upsetting 3-term Governor (and later U.S. Senator) John Chafee. Licht chose not to run for reelection due to his unpopularity from two decisions: his levying of the first state income tax in Rhode Island history, as well as a temporary state sales tax. Following his term as Governor, he sat as an Associate Justice for the Rhode Island Superior Court. His nephew, Richard Licht, later served as Lieutenant Governor of the state (1985-1989). Card slightly soiled, with a light paperclip stain at upper edge. Otherwise, fine condition. Two items.
