DescriptionFranklin D. Roosevelt: Typed Letter Signed "FDR" as President.
-April 28, 1936. Washington, D.C. One page, 7" x 8.75". White House letterhead.
-To: Frank C. Walker, New York, New York.
A deeply personal letter to Frank C. Walker, obtained from Walker's estate. FDR writes: "Dear Frank:/ Many thanks for your kind message of sympathy in the passing of Louis. I am deeply grateful to you./ Very sincerely yours,/ FDR". This personal note from FDR to Walker is very significant for a number of reasons. Foremost, this personal letter concerns the passing of FDR's most valuable assistant, Louis McHenry Howe. Louis McHenry Howe (1871-1936) made a career out of being "the man behind Roosevelt." He was in truth one of the most influential characters in the making of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt's political careers and perhaps most widely known under the title, "king-maker." This letter is also written to the man, Frank C. Walker, who would four years later replace FDR's other trusted advisor, James A. Farley, in the position of Postmaster General and Chairman of the Democratic National Committee.
