First Day Cover signed: "James A. Farley", 6½x3¾. FDC honoring the 50th anniversary of the Migratory Bird Treaty between the United States and Canada, postmarked Pittsburgh, PA, March 16, 1966, 5-cent Migratory Bird Treaty stamp affixed, FIRST DAY OF ISSUE. James Aloysius Farley (1888-1976) was Chairman of the Democratic National Committee (1932-1940) and Postmaster General (1933-1940) under Franklin D. Roosevelt, whose presidential campaigns he had managed in 1932 and 1936. He held both posts until disagreeing with FDR about running for a third term in 1940, leading to his resigning from both positions that year (Farley remained Chairman of the Democratic Party in New York state, a position in which he served from 1930-1944). After leaving FDR's administration, Farley served as Chairman of the Board of the Coca-Cola Export Corporation of New York until his retirement in 1973. Corners lightly creased. Minor unknown residue on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
