ROBERT S. KERR
Clipped sentiment from the closing of a letter
Typed Sentiment signed: "Robt. S. Kerr", 4x1½. Robert S. Kerr (1896-1963) passed the bar exam, but had such success in the oil business that he seldom practiced law. Beginning in the mid-1920s, he built what became Kerr-McGee Oil Industries, a diversified energy company. Kerr, a Democrat, was the first native-born Oklahoma Governor (1943-1947). He gave the keynote speech at the Democratic National Convention of 1944, and was instrumental in selection of Harry Truman as Vice Presidential nominee. Elected to the US Senate in 1948, he served there until his death, proving so adept at debate and legislative logrolling that he was dubbed "the uncrowned King of the Senate." Instead of focusing on foreign policy and other national issues, Kerr focused on promoting the economic interests of his state and region. His greatest legacy was the Arkansas River Navigation System, which made Tulsa, Oklahoma the nation's most inland seaport! Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
