Rare ALS, one page, 6.5 x 7.75, personal letterhead, June 5, 1933. Letter to “My dear Mr. Pierce,” in full: “In this generation of typewriters I do not write an autograph letter once a year. But that the typewriter may not finally terminate your series I do add this to the collection.” In fine condition, with trimmed edges.
Written just three months after leaving the presidency, this is an extremely rare autograph letter from this period—as Hoover himself here attests. According to the Shapell Foundation, Hoover wrote no more than six or seven handwritten letters as president. As these presidential letters are essentially unobtainable, this example serves as a fine substitute, especially considering its self-referential content. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
