Partially manuscript civil appointment signed: "Calvin Coolidge" and "Harry S. New" as Postmaster General. 17¼x13¾, with 2¼-inch embossed Post Office Department seal in lower left corner, printed on cardstock. Washington, DC, Jan. 17, 1924. This document made Harold Winslow Postmaster in New Bristol, Massachusetts for a four-year term beginning on Dec. 18, 1923. This document is dated only five months after Coolidge became President of the United States after the death of Warren G. Harding on Aug. 2, 1923. After losing an election for School Committee in 1905, CALVIN COOLIDGE (1872-1933, born in Plymouth, Vermont) never lost another one. He was Mayor of Northampton, Massachusetts (1910-1911), State Senator (1912-1915), Lieutenant Governor (1916-1918), Governor (1919-1920), vice president (1921-1923) and president (1923-1929). "Silent Cal," as he was called for his economy of speech, succeeded to the Presidency upon the death of Warren Harding and won election to his own full term in 1924. HARRY NEW (1858-1937, born in Indianapolis, Indiana) was a United States Senator from Indiana from 1917 to 1923 and United States Postmaster General from 1923 to 1929 under President Calvin Coolidge. He was also a reporter, editor, part owner and publisher of the Indianapolis Journal from 1878 to 1903. Lightly toned and creased. Lighted and top and bottom from mounting.
