FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT signed this document the same month he was sworn into office as Governor of New York, succeeding his political patron (and later foe) Alfred E. Smith, whom Roosevelt had nominated as the Democratic Presidential candidate in 1928. Smith lost to Herbert Hoover, whom Roosevelt would himself defeat for the Presidency four years later. Roosevelt (1882-1945), former state legislator, Assistant Navy Secretary and Vice Presidential candidate (1920), served two 2-year terms as New York's Governor before winning the first of an unprecedented four elections to the US Presidency, an office he would hold longer than anyone else (1933-1945). EDWARD G. GRIFFIN served as FDR's legal counsel for his first 1½ years as Governor, resigning effective May 15, 1929. The Governor of Massachusetts, not named in this document, was Frank G. Allen (1929-1931). Fold creases not near signature. Fine condition.
