ROBERT E. HANNEGAN
Small card signed by U. S. Postmaster General Robert E. Hannegan
Signature: "Robert E Hannegan" in blue ink. Pencil notations in top left corner and on verso, both in unknown hand. 3½x2 card. Hannegan (1903-1949) was Postmaster General of the United States (1945-1947). St. Louis Cardinals fans may also know him as their team's owner from 1947 to 1949. But his greatest contribution to history is probably his role as a power broker in the Democratic Party. He supported Harry S. Truman for re-election to Congress after the 1940 tax fraud conviction of Truman's sponsor Tom Pendergast. This support paid off big in 1944, when Truman recommended that President Franklin Delano Roosevelt make Hannegan chairman of the Democratic National Committee (1944-1947). As DNC chairman, Hannegan wrangled Truman onto the 1944 ticket as Roosevelt's vice-president. Lightly toned and soiled. Lightly toned, bottom and soiled. Lightened in bottom right corner from mounting. Otherwise in fine condition.
