Typed Letter signed: "Nicholas Longworth" as Speaker of the House, 1 page, 8x10¾. Washington D.C., 1927 December 16. On letterhead of The Speaker's Rooms, House of Representatives addressed to Professor Albert Johannsen, Chicago, Illinois. In full: "My dear Professor Johannsen: Your letter of December 12th is received and in compliance with your request I am glad to send you my autograph. It is appended hereto. Very truly yours," American politician Nicholas Longworth (1869-1931) was born part of a prominent Cincinnati family The Longworths. A graduate of Harvard University, he received his law degree from Cincinnati Law School in 1894. He was elected to the Ohio General Assembly, serving in the Ohio House of Representatives in 1899 and 1900 and in the State Senate from 1901 to 1903. He was then elected to represent the First Congressional District of Ohio to the United States House of Representatives. Arriving in Washington a young bachelor, he wooed the daughter of President Theodore Roosevelt, Alice Roosevelt, and the two married at the White House in 1906. A Republican, Longworth sided with the conservative Republicans against his father in-law and the progressive Republicans. Supporting the conservative presidential candidate William H. Taft for president, his views resulted in him losing his seat in Congress to a more progressive Republican candidate. Returning to Congress in 1914, Longworth served until his death. In 1923 he became Majority Leader of the House and in 1925 he became Speaker of the House and served in that position until the Republicans lost their House majority in 1931. The Longworth House Office Building on Capitol Hill commemorates his memory. Multiple mailing folds. Fine condition.
