Photograph signed: "Upton Sinclair" in brown ink. Pencil notations in unknown hand on verso. B/w, 8x10 overall, 7½x9¼ image, one surface. American writer Sinclair (1878-1968) is best known for The Jungle, his 1906 novel exposing the horrors of the Chicago meat-packing industry. His other novels include The Money Changers (1908), King Coal (1917) and Oil! (1927). Sinclair was also active in politics, organizing the socialist EPIC (End Poverty in California) movement during the Great Depression and running for as Democratic candidate for Governor of California in 1934. In the 1940s, Sinclair wrote an 11-volume series about contemporary American character, "Lanny Budd", who travels through time and meets historical figures; Dragon's Teeth (1942), in which Budd meets Adolf Hitler, won the 1943 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. Eight of his books have been adapted for film and TV, including There Will Be Blood (2007), which was based on Oil!. Lightly creased, one just touches the "U" in signature. Tape remnants at bottom blank left and right corners (do not touch signature). Overall, fine condition.
