Rare informal presidential photograph (3x2¾), signed in black ink
Photograph signed: "William McKinley", B/w 3x2¾ image mounted to a 3½x4 sheet. Signed on image. On mount is printed in unknown hand: "McKinley/1901". It is not known where this informal photograph of the President was taken. William McKinley (1843-1901) represented Ohio as a Republican in the U.S. Congress from 1877-1883 and 1885-1891, and he served as Governor of Ohio from 1892-1896. Elected 25th U.S. President in 1896, McKinley was reelected to a second term in 1900 with a larger plurality of votes than any other Chief Executive before him. The U.S. became a world power during his Presidency, winning a war with Spain (1898) and acquiring overseas colonies (Puerto Rico and the Philippines). On September 6, 1901, at the Pan American Exposition in Buffalo, New York, President McKinley was shot by Leon Czolgosz, an anarchist. He died on September 14, 1901, the third President to be assassinated. Signature in poor contrast, but legible. Pencil markings on mount. Adhesive residue on verso. Irregularly cut. Otherwise, fine condition.
