    Description

    Dwight D. Eisenhower and Bernard Law Montgomery Signed Photo A wonderful association piece, an 8" x 10.75" color magazine photo of Eisenhower and Montgomery c. 1944 standing atop an armored vehicle. Each has signed above their respective image. Eisenhower inscribes the photo, "For 'Skipper' Showalter Best wishes from Dwight D. Eisenhower," while Montgomery has simply signed, "Montgomery of Alamein F.M." Extremely light creases, otherwise in excellent condition. Together with a letter from Eisenhower's secretary to Showalter dated August 5, 1965, enclosing the aforementioned photo with Eisenhower's signature and noting that he had "...never ran across this particular picture... in addition...whom I believe to be Air Marshal Tedder -- of course... Nonetheless, would you be kind enough to let me know from what magazine this photograph was taken..." A fine example. From the collection of Bradley O'Leary. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
