About This Item

American government official appointed a Tennessee Valley Authority by FDR in 1933 and chairman from 1941 to 1946, earning the nickname "Mr. TVA"; he chaired the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission from 1947 to 1949. Large full signature in black ballpoint, heavy stock 5" X 3" card, n.p., 1967 March 31. Near fine. With original envelope. Accompanied by a superb original 1947 black-and-white glossy news agency photograph (International News Photo), 8½" X 6½". Original mimeographed newsprint text sheet present and tipped to verso (as issued). Titled "Discuss Atomic Liaison Question," this text reads in part: "The Joint Congressional Committee sought today to devise some method for keeping the doors of the newly-confirmed Atomic Commission open to military and legislative liaison. Atomic Commission chairman David E. Lilienthal, left, is shown as he called on Senator Bourke B. Hickenlooper... chairman of the Joint Congressional Atomic Committee...." A choice vintage image, itself scarce and desireable, and a fine signature example -- the perfect pair.
