Item Description: Circa [1930]. [1930], 1930. Book Condition: Very good. - A black-and-white 3-1/4 inch high by 2-5/8 inch wide portrait clipped from a magazine is mounted on a 5-1/2 inch high by 3-1/4 inch wide piece of cream-colored paper and then on a somewhat larger textured blue & black card.

The head-and-shoulders portrait of Lowes is inscribed to future Congressman Seymour Halpern, then a young autograph collector.John Livingston Lowes [1867-1945] was an American scholar and English literature critic, specializing in Coleridge and Chaucer. He was an English professor and served as dean of arts and sciences at Washington University in St. Louis from 1909 to 1918 and taught English at Harvard from 1918 to 1939. His most famous work is "The Road to Xanadu" [Houghton Mifflin, 1927], in which he examines the sources of Coleridge's "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" and "Kubla Khan".The Queens, New York Republican Congressman Seymour Halpern (1913-1997) started his political career as a campaign aide to New York's powerful mayor Fiorella La Guardia and first served in New York's State Senate for 14 years before seeking a seat in the U.S. Congress. In Albany Halpern sponsored 279 bills that became law, including measures on schools, housing, civil rights, nutrition and mental health. A Liberal, he was something of an anomaly as the lone Republican representative from New York City, and generally garnered support from Labor Unions and endorsement from the Liberal Party. Yet he never even considered switching parties as he considered membership in the Republican Party a family tradition and commitment. While he found ample time for his private pursuits, including painting and collecting autographs, he took his legislative duties very seriously. Of these, he was proudest of his co-sponsorship of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and of the original 1965 Medicare legislation. Bookseller Inventory # 34926

Book Condition: Very good. - Black-and-white, 3-1/2 inch high by 2-3/4 inch wide portrait, clipped from a magazine & mounted on an octagonal piece of green paper, 5 inches high by 3-1/2 inches wide, and then on a slightly larger piece of tan card.

Edison, Inc. in 1927. He ran the company until it merged with the McGraw Electric Company in 1957. He was board chairman of the merged company until he retired in 1961.

He served as the 42nd Governor of that state until Janusry 1944.The Queens, New York Republican Congressman Seymour Halpern (1913-1997) started his political career as a campaign aide to New York's powerful mayor Fiorella La Guardia and first served in New York's State Senate for 14 years before seeking a seat in the U.S. Congress. In Albany Halpern sponsored 279 bills that became law, including measures on schools, housing, civil rights, nutrition and mental health. A Liberal, he was something of an anomaly as the lone Republican representative from New York City, and generally garnered support from Labor Unions and endorsement from the Liberal Party. Yet he never even considered switching parties as he considered membership in the Republican Party a family tradition and commitment. While he found ample time for his private pursuits, including painting and collecting autographs, he took his legislative duties very seriously. Of these, he was proudest of his co-sponsorship of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and of the original 1965 Medicare legislation. Bookseller Inventory # 34922
