The Swiss Confederation President signs his name with the date on this 5¾x4¼ photograph
Photograph signed: "P. Chaudet/Président de la/Confédération/12.1.59". B/w, 5¾x4¼ overall, image 3¼x4¼ (one surface). Paul Chaudet (1904-1977), a member of the Radical Party, served as President of the Swiss Confederation (Switzerland) in 1959, the year after Swiss women had been granted voting privileges in Basel. In 1959, male Swiss voters rejected a proposal giving voting rights to all Swiss women, and women were not able to vote or hold office until 1971. Under the nation's 1848 Constitution, each of Switzerland's 20 cantons and six half-cantons (states) have their own constitutions and local governments, and chose a 46-member Council of States and 200-member National Council to represent them at the national level. These two bodies elect a seven-member Federal Council every four years, and a President and Vice President every year. Chaudet signed this photograph shortly after his inauguration. Fine condition.
