    Franklin D. Roosevelt: 1940 Re-Elect Roosevelt Vote American Labor Row "C" Poster. Two words sum up this 1940 poster: simply magnificent. It is certainly one of the three or four best Roosevelt campaign posters. It is currently shrink-wrapped. The poster itself measures 21" x 28". It compares 1932 under Hoover with people in breadlines, out of their homes, and with banks closed against 1940 under Roosevelt with high wages, affordable housing and Social Security as a safety net for senior Americans. Central, horizontal fold with small vertical scratch or abrasion next to the portrait. Three short border tears, diagonal fold lines on the left corners with minor loss to top corners, none of which significantly impact the graphic appeal of this colorful, issue-oriented 1940 poster lauding the accomplishments of the New Deal.

    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.
