TOM BRADLEY
Ghanian first day cover honoring United Nations Day signed by Bradley
First day cover inscribed and signed: "To Fred/With best wishes/Tom Bradley", 6½x3½. First Day Cover United Nations Day with cachet of United Nations building and UN coat of arms on left, Oct. 24, 1958, Accra, Ghana, with Ghanian coat of arms stamp in purple ink and New York postmark on verso, three Ghanian UN stamps and one Ghanian Abraham Lincoln stamp affixed, FIRST DAY OF ISSUE. Tom Bradley (1917-1998, born in Calvert, Texas), Los Angeles' first black City Councilman, was the first black man to serve as Mayor of a predominantly white city. The son of sharecroppers who grew up in poverty, Breadley nevertheless went on to become Mayor of Los Angeles for an unprecedented five terms (1973-1993). His administration was noted for opening up city government to minorities and women and for securing the 1984 Summer Olympic Games for the city. But he was also mayor during the videotaped beating of Rodney King in 1991. A jury acquitted the four police officers involved, which sparked the worst riots of that decade in the United States and which left over 50 people dead. Lightly toned. Paper lightly discolored on verso (not on front) by envelope adhesive. Otherwise, fine condition.
