FRANKLIN DELANO ROOSEVELT
Seating list for the 1936 National Press Club Founders' Dinner. This list includes FDR, but not his wife Eleanor or secretary Marguerite LeHand.
Document unsigned. With pencil notations in unknown hand. 4 pages, 13¾x8½, single-sided pages, otherwise in fine condition. Titled: "Special Arrangements for/National Press Club Founders' Dinner to President Roosevelt, May 9, 1936.". According to this document, Roosevelt was scheduled to be seated in "Sp 18". Neither his wife Eleanor Roosevelt nor his secretary and possible mistress Marguerite LeHand are listed here. Roosevelt (1882-1945, born in Hyde Park, New York) was elected Governor of New York in 1928, 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, 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). Lightly toned and creased. Two tackhead-sized holes on page 4. Staple is rusted, with rust stains on page 1. Folded thrice and unfolded. Center fold is discolored on verso of page 4.
