ROBERT E. HANNEGAN
Truman's Postmaster General responds to a letter from a man in Indianapolis and sends him an autographed cover.
Typed Letter signed: "Robert E Hannegan" as Truman's Postmaster General, 1 page, 7x8¾. Washington, 1947 January 31. On letterhead of The Postmaster General addressed to Mr. Edward J. Hughes, Indianapolis, Indiana. In full: "Upon my recent return to the office your letter of December 24 was brought to my attention. It is indeed a pleasure to comply with your request and the autographed cover is enclosed. [Item not included] With best wishes, I am Sincerely yours,"Robert E. 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. Multiple mailing folds. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
