    Frank Knox: Letter Archive including Two Typed Letters Signed.
    -January 24, 1933 TLS. One page. 8.5" x 11", Chicago Daily News letterhead. To Leroy T. Vernon.
    -February 24, 1933 TLS. Two pages. 8.5" x 11", Chicago Daily News letterhead. To Leroy T. Vernon.
    -All items fine condition overall.

    Also includes three carbon copy multi-page typed letters (unsigned) from Vernon to Knox, also from the early 1933 period. Vernon reports directly to Knox his conversations with Hoover during the last days of his Presidency, and Hoover's opinion towards FDR (most unflattering, of course). The content contained in these five letters of correspondence during this critical period preceding FDR's inauguration as president contain fantastic content from a Republican perspective. Knox would later serve as Navy Secretary under Roosevelt during World War II.
