JOSEPH W. MARTIN
As House Speaker, he promises to help AMVETS get chartered by the US Government.
Typed Letter signed: "Joseph W. Martin, Jr." as Speaker, 1 page, 8x10¼. Washington, D.C., 1947 January 17. On letterhead of the Speaker's Rooms, US House of Representatives, to J. H. Lieb, Arlington, Virginia. In full: "Relative to our conversation of yesterday you may rest assured that I will do everything in my power to bring about the passage of the AMVET Charter during this session of Congress. With best wishes, I am, Sincerely". Joseph William Martin, Jr. (1884-1968) represented a Massachusetts district in the US House of Representatives (1925-1967). He was the only Republic Speaker of the House between 1931 and 1995, serving during the short-lived Republican majorities of 1947-1949 and 1953-1955. He remained Minority Leader until 1959. He had been one of the House Republicans lambasted by FDR on the campaign trail in 1940 as "Martin, Barton and Fish." An opponent of the New Deal with a few exceptions (like the minimum wage), Martin supported Ohio Senator Robert Taft for the Republican Presidential nomination in 1952, but loyally supported President Eisenhower after his election. The AMVETS, a leading US veterans' organization, did receive an official charter under Chapter 36 of the United States Code, which recognizes "Patriotic and National Organizations" as various as the Boy Scouts, the National Education Association, and the US Olympic Committee. Toned and creased. Multiple mailing folds. Corners worn and chipped. Otherwise, fine condition.
