Adlai Stevenson For President Committee Archive of Correspondence, Mailings, Press Releases, etc. All circa 1956. Perhaps 150-200 pieces. Most single typed sheets or memos, with a few Adlai Stevenson newsletters, telegrams, etc. Three letters appear signed by Adlai Stevenson, although it is not known whether it was him signing, or a secretarial signature. The archive is from a well-connected insurance company executive who appears to have been active in Democratic politics. The archive has a vast amount of duplicate copies of original typed letters sent by the previous owner, as well as responses, mostly relating to fundraising events, donations, etc. Seating arrangements for events present, as well as lists of donors, etc. The typed letters from Stevenson (signed by him) seem to address the previous owner on a personal level, so they may have known each other. Adlai Stevenson was a governor of Illinois, and ran for president in 1952 and 1956, losing to Eisenhower both times. He served as the US Ambassador to the UN from 1961 to 1965. All in GOOD condition, with two hole punches at the top edge. Minor creasing and wear, with pencil notations to many of the pieces.

Price: $250.00
