HENRY A. WALLACE
Henry A. Wallace signs two stamps.
Stamps signed: "H A Wallace", 2¼x1. Two un-cancelled 5-cent U.S. postage stamps honoring Virginia Dare, born in Roanoke, Virginia in 1587. From March 4, 1933 to September 2, 1940, Henry Agard Wallace 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 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. In 1948, Wallace was the Progressive Party candidate for President against Truman, but he did not receive any electoral votes. Fine condition.
