Rare Autograph Letter Signed: "Hoover" in pencil, 1p, 8x8½. No place, no date. To "Dear M[illegible]".

Beneath his signature, Hoover has written: "Copy". Herbert Clark Hoover (1874-1964), the first President born west of the Mississippi River, served as 31st President of the U.S. from 1929-1933. Prior to taking office, Hoover had been Secretary of Commerce (1921-1928) under Presidents Warren G. Harding and Calvin Coolidge. Hoover lived longer after his term of office than any other U.S. President: 31 years and 231 days. Holograph letters of Hoover are exceedingly rare. Worthy of further research.
