Card signed by the U. S. Representative from New York. Halpern was a rare - and popular - Republican in Democrat-dominated New York politics
Signature: "Seymour Halpern/Member of Congress". 3½x2 card. Halpern (1913-1997) was U. S. Representative from New York (4th District, 1959-1963; 6th District, 1963-1973), as well as a member of the New York state senate (1941-1944 and 1945-1954). His political career is all the more remarkable because Halpern was a Republican at a time when Democrats dominated New York politics; in fact, Halpern became the lone Republican in the state's House of Representatives delegation near the end of his career. Needless to say, he was an unusually liberal Republican who was supported by labor unions and was even endorsed by the Liberal Party. Halpern also kept his seat with keeping detailed and often headline-grabbing attention to his constituents. These included posing as the relative of a patient at Creedmoor State Hospital, during his state senate days, to investigate reports of horrific conditions there. Halpern had deep roots in New York City politics, serving as a staff assistant to Mayor Fiorello La Guardia in 1937 and as an assistant to the president of the New York City Council from 1938 to 1940. Lightly toned and soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
