World War II-dated General Headquarters Southwest Pacific Area, Office of the Commander-in-Chief mailing envelope, 9 x 4, postmarked on May 28, 1945, signed in the upper left in fountain pen by Douglas MacArthur. The balance of the envelope filled out by another hand. In very good to fine condition, with some creasing and a few light stains.

Provenance: from the estate of Senator Carl Levin. A lifelong Democrat, ardent advocate for civil rights, and staple of the United States Senate from 1979 to 2015, Senator Levin was also a longtime client of RR Auction. As a collector, he favored his political heroes—Harry S. Truman, Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, and Martin Luther King, Jr.—as well as those figures emblematic of the American spirit, like Robert Frost, Joe Louis, and Helen Keller.
