HOWARD E. SIMPSON
His signature on an envelope with a 1956 Israeli postmark and an ink stamp cachet of a train
Envelope signed: "H.E. Simpson", 6x4. Envelope postmarked Jerusalem, April 15, 1956, 2 Israeli stamps affixed, illustrated with an ink stamp illustration of a railroad train with a printed caption in Hebrew. Howard Edward Simpson (1897-1985) entered the railroad business as an office boy. He went to work for the Baltimore and Ohio (B&O) Railroad in 1931, rising through the ranks to become company president in 1953. From 1946, he had been a Vice President for freight operations, keeping that end of the business profitable while passenger traffic declined. Simpson proved to be the last board chairman for the railroad, retiring when it merged with the Chesapeake and Ohio in 1962. Today the B&O, known in Simpson's day for the high quality of its dining service, survives only as a fine museum in Baltimore and as a stop on the Monopoly board. Horizontal fold crease ½ from top edge. Lightly toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
