Warren G. Harding

This lot has closed

Estimate: $200+


The Marion Star check, 8 x 3.25, filled out in another hand and signed by Harding, "W. G. Harding," payable to the Marion Railway Light and Power Co. for $32.18, April 4, 1908. In fine condition. Harding bought the Ohio daily newspaper The Marion Daily Star in 1884, and held ownership of the paper until mid-1923. Although Harding's editorial department slanted toward the Republican platform, the daily paper remained somewhat neutral due to its position as the newspaper of record for Marion County, Ohio. However, the Star's weekly publication served as the partisan arm of Harding's newspaper empire.
