ROBERT SCHENCK
His ink signature on a printed autograph card (1870)
Printed Card signed in ink: "Robt. C. Schenck/Dayton/Ohio/Oct 1. 1870." as U.S. Minister to Great Britain (1870-1876), 5x2¾ white autograph card. The American politician, general and diplomat (1809-1890) also served as a member of the Ohio House of Representatives (1839-1843), U.S. Representative from Ohio (1843-1851, 1863-1871), and U.S. Minister to Brazil (as well as Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay, 1851-1853). Despite having no prior military experience, Schenck proved a capable general in early engagements of the Civil War, until he resigned to take his seat in Congress, having beaten notorious "Copperhead" Democrat Clement Vallandingham. He failed of re-election by three votes in 1870. Appointed Minister to the United Kingdom by President Grant, he popularized draw poker in that country, later writing a book on the subject, but he soiled his reputation by lending his name to an unsound mining investment scheme. Lightly toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
