ABRAHAM DAVID "ABE" BEAME (1906-2001) was New York City Budget Director (1952-1961) and Comptroller (1961-1969). A Democrat, he lost a bid for Mayor in 1969 to Republican John Lindsey, but won the office four years later, becoming the City's first Jewish Mayor in 1973. As Mayor, Beame was immediately confronted with budget crisis set off by a looming $1.5 billion city deficit. He managed to fend off bankruptcy through a combination of drastic austerity measures and state and federal aid, but lost to Ed Koch in a re-election bid in 1977, finishing third in a multi-candidate race. In Beame's last year in office, New York City had a $200 million budget surplus. Ink transfer. Lightly toned. Light surface creases. Corners lightly worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
