Civil Appointment signed: "Calvin Coolidge" as President, "Harry S. New" as Postmaster General. Washington, D.C., 18x14.1926 May 19. Appointment of Josephine M. Costar as Postmaster of Greenville, California. 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). He earned a national following during the Boston Police Strike of 1919, when as Governor he declared, "There is no right to strike against the public safety by anyone, anywhere, any time." "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. Despite his taciturn manner, Coolidge gave more press conferences than any President before or since, and was the first to deliver a political speech on radio. How one rates the Coolidge Presidency depends largely on whether one shares his belief in reduced government spending and regulation. HARRY S. 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 appointed by President Warren Harding and continuing in office under Calvin Coolidge. He was also a reporter, editor, part owner and publisher of the Indianapolis Journal from 1878 to 1903. Lightly creased. Slightly soiled. Edges lightly worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
