JAMES A. FARLEY. TLS: "J.A. Farley", 1p, 8½x11. New York City, 1940 March 29. On letterhead of the Democratic National Committee to Mr. Bernard D. Keenan, Chicago, Illinois. In full: "Thank you very much for your kind letter of March 18th, regarding my St. Patrick's Day speech. It was thoughtful of you to write me, and I am attaching hereto a copy of the speech, which I thought you might like to read over. With kind personal regards, I am Sincerely yours,". Enclosure not present. Written the year that Farley resigned his positions as FDR's Postmaster General and Chairman of the Democratic National Committee. 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.
