Description


Hardcover Waterman's autograph album, 5 x 7.25, signed inside on affixed slips by fifteen notable figures, including: Babe Ruth, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Eleanor Roosevelt, Douglas Fairbanks, Tom Mix, Gene Tunney, Harry Woodring, Arthur Capper, Charles Sparks, Joseph T. Robinson, John Nance Garner, Al Smith, Charles Curtis, Robert Coogan, and Jackie Coogan. Additional signers include local radio operators and secretaries to businesspeople. All have been closely annotated beneath the signature by the recipient. In very good to fine condition. For six months in the early 1930s—April 1 to October 1, 1932—the Waterman fountain pen company ran a contest for boys and girls. Each entrant was to fill one of these autograph albums with signatures of notables of the day and send it to the company to qualify for a prize. An array of 333 prizes were given away, from the $1000 first prize to the Waterman's pencil for runners up.
