The eldest son of President Franklin Roosevelt signs "Good Luck" on a 6x3½ card
Autograph Sentiment Signed: "Good luck!/James Roosevelt", 6x3½. Magazine photograph, color, 1¼x2, affixed at upper left margin. Captioned: "The Victor". The photograph's caption likely refers to Roosevelt's 1954 win as California's U.S. Congressman. James Roosevelt (1907-1991), the eldest son of President Franklin Roosevelt and Anna Eleanor Roosevelt, organized an insurance firm in Boston, became a secretary to his father and then served in the U.S. Marine Corps through WWII (1940-1945). He later represented California in the U.S. Congress from 1955-1965. After a year as U.S. representative with the U.N. Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, Roosevelt returned to the private sector as a public relations consultant. He was married to Betsy Cushing, daughter of Dr. Harvey Cushing (1930-1940, divorced), Romelle Schneider (1941-1955, divorced), Gladys Irene Owens (1956-1969, divorced) and Mary Lena Winskill (1969-1991, his death). Slightly creased, light vertical fold at the "t" of Roosevelt. Nicked at upper left blank corner, slightly soiled on verso. Fine condition.
