Circa: 1930
Manufacturer: Herbert Hoover

Note hand-written by President Herbert Hoover to renowned American journalist Mark Sullivan (1874-1952) requesting assistance with the preparation of a Memorial Day speech to be given by Hoover at Gettysburg Battlefield on May 30, 1930. Sullivan was a close friend and confidante to Herbert Hoover. When called upon by Hoover, Sullivan would assist with the preparation of speeches and addresses to the public.

Mark Sullivan was considered to be one of the most widely respected journalists of his day corresponding with Presidents Theodore Roosevelt, William Taft, Woodrow Wilson, Warren Harding, Calvin Coolidge and Herbert Hoover. Sullivan was also a confidant to Theodore Roosevelt as well as a good friend and confidant to Herbert Hoover. In addition to Presidents, Sullivan corresponded with many notable politicians, businessmen and literary figures of the day including Arthur Conan Doyle who he was good friends with as well as Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Orville Wright and many other prominent and influential people from the 1890's to mid 1900's.

Sullivan wrote and published between 1926-1935 a six volume book by the title 'Our Times 1900-1925' which chronicled the social and political history of America from the 1890's to the 1920's.

Sullivan correspondence can be found archived in the manuscript division of the Library of Congress and in the Herbert Hoover Institution Archives.

Hand-written correspondence by Herbert Hoover is rarely found. Hand-written letters and notes tended to be spontaneous and personal. Hoover himself indicated "I do not write more than one letter per annum with my own hand." Hand-written correspondence by Hoover during his years as President are even more elusive and considered exceptionally rare.

The note is hand-written using pencil on ink printed 'ADDRESS' letterhead measuring approximately 8" x 3.5". There is a paper clip stain and two pinholes on the right side and some age toning of the paper.

Would be glad to answer any questions and/or provide a cost for mailing.
