PETER COOPER
Cooper signed this dated New York Public School award for Maria Nunnst in 1843.
Partly printed document signed "Peter Cooper" for the School Committee and "Caroline Whiting" as Teacher. With pencil notation on verso in unknown hand. 1 page, 7¼x9¼. Dec. 1843. An award presented to Maria Nunns, a student at "New York Public School,/No. 13" for "regular & punctual attendance with correct deportment & diligent attention to her studies." Excellent vignette at top center. Cooper (1791-1883, born in New York City) designed and built the first American locomotive, named Tom Thumb, in 1830; was the promoter and financial backer of Cyrus Field in the laying of the Atlantic cable; and founded Cooper Union in New York City (1859) "for the advancement of science and art". The school is still giving free courses in science, chemistry, electricity, engineering and art. In 1876, Cooper was the Greenback party nominee for President, receiving 81,737 votes out of 8.4 million votes cast. Lightly toned, especially around the edges, creased and rippled. Lightly discolored from mounting or frame. Pinhead-size nick at lower left blank edge. Otherwise in fine condition.
