Babson sends letter regarding request for photograph
Autograph Letter signed: "Roger W Babson", 1p, 5½x8½. Wellesley, Massachusetts, 1941 June 6. On personal letterhead to "Dear Mr. Fay". In full: "I was delighted to know you would like one of my pictures. Under separate cover one is on its way.[Item not included.] [2 words illegible] you." Pencil note (unknown hand) at upper right corner. Roger W. Babson (1875-1967), who began his business career with a Boston investment firm, had founded Babson's Statistical Organization, later called Babson's Reports, with an initial investment of $1,200 in 1904. As a pioneering business in the financial services industry, the firm realized millions of dollars in annual revenues in its first decade. Babson also shared his expertise through columns in such publications as the "Saturday Evening Post" and "The New York Times", eventually forming his own syndicate, the Publishers Financial Bureau. In 1919, Babson founded a business school, The Babson Institute, which became Babson College (Wellesley, Massachusetts), a prestigious college emphasizing entrepreneurship, in 1969. Herbert W. Fay (b. 1859), the addressee, was curator of the Abraham Lincoln Monument in Springfield, Illinois, and a noted collected of portrait photographs of famous persons. Light mailing folds. Slightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
