About This Item

The versatile diplomat and statesman served as ambassador to the U.S.S.R. (1943-46), then briefly to England; he helped negotiate the 1963 Nuclear Test-Ban Treaty and represented the U.S. at the Paris peace talks on Vietnam, served as secretary of commerce, governor of New York, and more. Partly-printed ADS, 1p, 8½" X 11", New York, NY, 1919 October 23. Very good. Several small edge tears archivally mended on verso. Updating form sent out by Whoís Who in America for their 1920-21 edition, on pale orange stock. Harrimanís then-brief entry from the previous edition -- he was less than thirty years old at the time! -- is affixed to the blank center area. Harriman has written out "Born 1891 / married Sept. 1915 / Miss Kitty Lanier Lawrence," then at the bottom added his business address, signed and dated it. Unusual, and by far the earliest Harriman item we have encountered. Comes with a choice original 10" X 8" news agency photograph of 1947 showing Harriman as commerce secretary -- itself scarce. Mini-biography of Harriman as an up-and-coming twenty-something.
