This lot has closed

Estimate: $500+


Vintage matte-finish 7.75 x 9.75 close-up photo of MacArthur in uniform, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, "To Fred Kemp, With cordial regard, Douglas MacArthur, Tokyo 1949.” In very good to fine condition, with toning and rippling to the edges. After WWII, MacArthur's headquarters were located in Tokyo, where he helped Japan to rebuild itself following the devastation of war. Overseeing this redevelopment, MacArthur was effectively the interim leader of Japan from 1945 to 1948; after handing over power to the Japanese government in 1948, MacArthur remained in Japan until relieved by President Harry S. Truman in 1951.
