June 16, 1917-Dated WW1 Era, Typed Letter Signed, “F D Roosevelt” as Assistant Secretary of the Navy on “Navy Department - Washington” official letterhead, measuring 10.5” x 8”, Choice Very Fine. Here, FDR writes to Congressman James P. Maher, who interceded on behalf of a discharged Navy Yard worker, informing him that the worker had been reinstated. Roosevelt’s signature is bold, prominent, and unusually massive, written in rich brown ink measuring about 4.5” long. A clean lovely example, quite choice for display.
Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882-1945) was the 32nd President of the United States, serving from 1933 until his death in 1945. Born into a wealthy family in Hyde Park, New York, Roosevelt attended Harvard University and Columbia Law School before entering politics. He served as the Governor of New York from 1929 to 1933, during which time he implemented progressive reforms to combat the effects of the Great Depression.

Roosevelt was elected president in 1932, defeating incumbent Herbert Hoover in a landslide victory. As president, he implemented the New Deal, a series of programs and policies aimed at providing relief, recovery, and reform during the Great Depression. His administration's efforts included the creation of social welfare programs, public works projects, and financial regulations.

In addition to his domestic policies, Roosevelt also led the United States through World War II, steering the nation through its darkest hours with his steady leadership and inspiring optimism. He was the only president to serve four terms in office, winning re-election in 1936, 1940, and 1944.

Roosevelt's presidency transformed the role of the federal government and left a lasting legacy on American society. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest presidents in U.S. history, praised for his leadership during times of crisis and his efforts to promote economic and social justice.

Roosevelt's leadership helped to shape the modern welfare state and establish the United States as a global superpower. He passed away in April 1945, just weeks before the end of World War II.
