KATE SMITH. TLS: "Kate Smith", 1p, 7¼x10½. No place, no date. On her personal letterhead to Mrs. Ernest Robowski, Michigan City, Indiana. Begins: "Dear Friend". In full: "Thank you so much for your lovely letter and I hasten to apologize for my tardiness in acknowledging same but we receive quite a lot of mail and sometimes we get backlogged a bit. I want to thank you for the beautiful hankie it is just lovely. I will be appearing on quite a few television shows this season, I hope you will be watching and that you enjoy them. Good-bye for now and may God bless you and yours." The "Songbird of the South," vocalist Smith (1907-1986) was one of the most popular stars of the pre-WWII era. She is best remembered for her definitive version of the patriotic anthem "God Bless America", which became a hit on no less than three separate occasions, beginning in 1938. A radio, television and recording star for five decades, Smith is also known for the song she co-wrote, "When The Moon Comes Over The Mountain", which became her theme song when The Kate Smith Show debuted on radio in May 1931. In 1950, she became a pioneer in daytime television programming with The Kate Smith Hour, which ran for four years. Later, The Kate Smith Show (1960) ran only one season, and Smith slowed her pace after the death of her longtime manager, Ted Collins, in 1964, making only occasional appearances in nightclubs and television shows. Fine condition.
