His signature on a White House card, framed in the Gallery of History style to 19x14.
White House Card signed: "Calvin Coolidge", 4x2½. Imprinted: "The White House/Washington". Respected for his honesty, Calvin Coolidge (1872-1933) restored the nation's faith in government when, as 30th President of the U.S. (1923-1929), he determined that those involved in the Teapot Scandal should be punished. Six months after succeeding to the presidency upon the death of Warren G. Harding, Coolidge designated special counsel to probe into the naval oil reserve frauds and other illegal activities of his predecessor's political allies. When Attorney General Harry Daugherty refused to aid Senate investigators, "Silent Cal" personally demanded his resignation. Stating that "the business of America is business", Coolidge, the former Governor of Massachusetts (1919-1920), continued the prevalent "laissez-faire" policy toward industry and maintained high tariffs. As Congress lowered income taxes, Coolidge decreased the national debt by more than one billion dollars a year. The first Vice President to attend Cabinet meetings, he went on to win re-election in his own right in 1924, but had lost "the glory of the presidency" after his son, Calvin Jr., died on July 7, 1924. Slightly soiled. Fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 19¼x14¼.
