About this Item

This Cleveland attorney and Republican politician became that city's city manager in 1930, effectively operating as Cleveland's 42nd mayor at a time when Cleveland operated briefly on the city manager plan; but with the Great Depression his reforms and hiring of African-Americans at City Hospital didn't sit well and that model was outvoted for the more traditional major/city council plan; he ran for mayor, but was defeated by a Democrat and by 1931 was out of a job; in 1939 he became judge of the Ohio Court of Appeals. ANS, 1p, 8½" X 6", Cleveland, OH, 24 December 1934. Addressed to "Mr. Gates" (Arnold F. Gates, 1914-93, noted Lincoln/Civil War scholar). Near fine. On his imprinted "Law Office of Daniel E. Morgan" letterhead, the de facto former mayor notes simply in his huge, bold hand: "Am pleased to send you my autograph." and signs boldly in full below. An attractive example from the period between his mayorship and his judgeship. Unusual item for the Cleveland completist. Bookseller Inventory # 40990
