HENRY A. WALLACE
Signing as "H A Wallace"
Signature: "H A Wallace", 5x3. Henry Agard Wallace (1888-1965) served as FDR's Secretary of Agriculture, the same job held by his father, Henry C. Wallace, under Presidents Harding and Coolidge (March 5, 1921 until his death on October 25, 1924). At the Democratic National Convention held in Chicago Stadium from July 15-18, 1940, Wallace was selected by FDR to be his running mate, and the convention nominated the team on the first ballot. In the November 5, 1940 election, FDR and Wallace soundly defeated the Republican ticket of political newcomer Wendell L. Willkie and Senator Charles L. McNary by 27.2 million to 22.3 million popular votes, 449-82 electoral votes and 38-ten states. Wallace served as FDR's Vice President from 1941-1945. In 1944, he was replaced on the ticket by Senator Harry S Truman. President Roosevelt died just 82 days after Wallace's vice presidential term ended. Before his death, FDR appointed Wallace as his Secretary of Commerce, making Wallace the only former Vice President to serve in a President's Cabinet. Wallace held the office under FDR and Truman until September 20, 1946, when Truman forced him to resign for criticizing U.S. foreign policy. Wallace became Editor of the "New Republic" (1946-1948) and helped to launch the new Progressive Party. In 1948, he became the new party's Presidential candidate, winning no electoral votes as Truman beat Dewey. Toned. Staple holes at bottom right. Pencil note (unknown hand) on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
