FRANKLIN DELANO ROOSEVELT
Menu for the 1937 National Press Club Member's Annual Dinner, with FDR as the guest of honor
Menu unsigned. With pencil notation in unknown hand on rear cover. Two-tone blue-and-white, 8 pages including covers, 4½x7½ (folded), 2 sheets folded, front and verso, with irregular right edges. With cardstock covers and yellow cord binding. Menu for the National Press Club Members' Annual Dinner, held on Nov. 13, 1937 at the National Press Club Auditorium in Washington, D. C. Roosevelt was the guest of honor. The night's entertainment included Who's a Dummy? By Frederick A. Storm and Addison G. Foster; Minstrel Memories by blackface artist George O'Connor; and Walter O'Keefe, "Maestro of the Airwaves". 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 bowed. Mounting residue in both lower corners and upper right corner. Otherwise in fine condition.
