Typed Letter signed as a US Senator (1924)
Typed Letter signed: "James Couzens" as US Senator, 1 page, 8x10½. Washington, D.C., 1924 November 22. On Senate letterhead to Reverend Anthony Parshley, St. Paul's Rectory, Lancaster, New Hampshire. In full: "I have yours of the fourteenth and you may consider the signature of this letter as my autograph. Very truly yours". Fold crease through "C" of last name. Lightly toned at upper margin. Accompanied by unsigned newspaper photo (b/w, 3x4). Slightly grainy image. Fine condition. James Couzens (1872-1936) helped Henry Ford build the Ford Motor Co, rising to Vice President and General Manager before selling his interest to the Ford family in 1919. That year he was elected Mayor of Detroit, serving until 1922, when he was appointed to fill a vacant seat in the US Senate. Three weeks before this letter was written, Couzens was elected in his own right to the first of two full terms in the Senate. A progressive Republican, Couzens supported many of Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal initiatives, for which reason his Party denied him re-nomination in 1936. Couzens was noted for his philanthropy.
