JEAN HERSHOLT
Jean Hersholt sends a typed letter ordering two different copies of "Hans Andersen's Fairy Tales", one published in London, the other in Boston.
Typed Letter Signed: "Jean Hersholt", 1p, 6¾x9¼ matted, with a 7¼x9 b/w photo. No place, 1952 June 3. To Clyde King, Jr., Providence, Rhode Island, ordering two different copies of "Hans Andersen's Fairy Tales", one published in London, the other in Boston. Jean Hersholt (1886-1956) created the role of Dr. Christian on radio in 1937 and then filmed a series of six Christian movies for RKO (1939-1941). Dr. Christian was named for Hersholt's favorite author, Hans Christian Andersen, whose fairy tales he is ordering in this letter. Extending the ethics and generosity of Dr. Christian into his private life, Hersholt set up the Motion Picture Relief Fund, which provided medical care and a livable income for actors, directors and other studio employees who were no longer able to care for themselves. While serving as President of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, he received two honorary Academy Awards for his charity work (1940, 1950). After his death in 1956, the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award was set up by the Academy to honor conspicuous acts of selflessness and kindness in the movie industry. The letter is slightly creased, usual folds not at signature. Fine condition. Matted, not in Gallery of History style: 20¾x14. Not reviewed by us for conservation integrity. "As is" matting purchase.
