SIGNED hardcover first edition - First printing. The first full-length biography of this politician and statesman who served as Secretary of War during the World War I. Cramer received the 1973 Cleveland Arts Prize for Literature and the citation stated "Red CramerÕs histories were treasured both for their accuracy and for their straightforward, and somewhat irreverent, treatment of people and events. . . . . CramerÕs 1962 biography of Newton D. Baker, the brilliant mayor of Cleveland (1912Ð1916), who became Woodrow WilsonÕs Secretary of War, revealed that F.D.R. had phoned Baker during the deadlocked 1932 Democratic convention to offer to throw his support to him, if Baker, the darling of the Stop Roosevelt forces, really wanted the nomination. He didnÕt. Baker saw the presidency, wrote Cramer, as a four-year sentence to a glorified prison 'without benefit of clergy or even the mollifying ministration of a parole board.'" INSCRIBED on the front endpaper "To -- with kindest regards, Beth and Red Cramer" and dated March 1961, in the year of publication. Photographs, bibliography, notes, index. 310 pp. Near fine in very good dust jacket (price-clipped, small chip to upper edge of front cover of dj.). Bookseller Inventory # 68048
