ROOSEVELT (1882-1945), the 32nd President of the U.S., served as President longer than any other man (1933-1945). Roosevelt, who was elected to an unprecedented four terms as President and served for 12 years before dying in office in 1945, led the nation through two of its greatest crises, the Great Depression and WWII. He had previously served as Assistant Secretary of the Navy (1913-1920), a post once held by his cousin, Theodore Roosevelt, as a New York State Senator (1911-1913) and as Governor of New York (1929-1933), and FDR had been a candidate for the Democratic Vice Presidential nomination in 1920. HOMER STILLE CUMMINGS (1870-1956) was FDR's Attorney General from 1933-1939, serving in the post longer than any other man except William Wirt (1817-1829). A former Mayor of Stamford, Connecticut (elected in 1900, 1901 and 1904), Cummings had previously chaired the Democratic National Committee (1919-1920) and served as a Connecticut State Attorney (1914-1924). After retiring from national office, he returned to the private practice of law. Ink smudged at the "lt" of Roosevelt. Lightly creased with folds, light verical folds touch signatures.
