FRANKLIN DELANO ROOSEVELT
Menu and program for a Jefferson Day Dinner held by the Democratic National Committee at Washington, D. C.'s Mayflower Hotel in 1939. This dinner was scheduled one day after FDR's death and would have included a radio address by him.
Menu unsigned. Three-tone red-blue-and-white with gold-colored ink on cover. 24 pages, 9x12, with bound with blue cord and one staple. With 4¾x7½ (overall) b/w photos of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Vice President Harry S. Truman respectively pasted to pages 3 and 5.Titled: "Jackson/Day/dinner/1939". This dinner was held by the Democratic National Committee on April 13, 1945 at Washington, D. C.'s Mayflower Hotel. Roosevelt died on April 12, 1945, one day before this dinner was to be held. The schedule of events included a radio address by him. It also included an address by Truman, his Vice-President and, as it turned out, successor. 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, soiled, and creased, otherwise in fine condition.
