Autograph envelope unsigned. 6½x3½, on envelope from the Copley-Plaza Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts. Red 2¢ George Washington stamp affixed, postmarked Chicago, Illinois, Feb. 20, 1927. Addressed to "Mrs Wainwright/912 Clay Avenue/Scranton/Pennsylvania" in blue ink. Also with "Norman Angell" written on front and grocery list written on verso, both in unknown hand and in pencil. Angell maintained a fairly sizable correspondence with this unidentified "Mrs. Wainwright", who would often open her home to him when he was in the Scranton, Pennsylvania area. In 1910, British journalist Angell (1872-1967, born Ralph Norman Angell-Lane in Holbeach, Lincolnshire, England) rose to fame with The Great Illusion, in which he reasoned that the common economic interests of nations make war futile. Knighted in 1931, Angell was awarded the 1933 Nobel Peace Prize. He also invented the Money Game, which were card games designed to teach its players about currency and credit. He continued to write and lecture into the 1950s. Lightly toned, soiled and creased. Stained at blank right edge. Stray ink marks above addressee. Torn open at top with tears along top edge. Address has bled lightly. Otherwise in fine condition.
