ROBERT P. PATTERSON
The Secretary of War signs his name in black ink on this 5x3 card
Printed Card Signed in Ink: "Robert P. Patterson", 5x3. Dated March 17, 1941. Robert Porter Patterson (1891-1952), a World War I veteran (Distinguished Service Cross) and federal judge, was appointed by President Roosevelt to the War Department in 1940, first as an Assistant Secretary and shortly thereafter as Under Secretary. President Truman had considered appointing Patterson to the Supreme Court, but when Henry Stimson resigned as Secretary of War, the President nominated him for that post instead (officially dated from September 27, 1945). He served until mid-1947, pushing desegregation of the armed forces and advocating unification of the services. Patterson served later as President of the New York Bar Association and of the Council on Foreign Relations. Fine condition.
