New York's Republican governor from 1915 to 1919 (when defeated by Alfred E. Smith) first gained fame in 1912 when, as a Manhattan district attorney, he prosecuted a New York City police lieutenant for the murder of a Times Square gambling house operator. PS, 9¼" X 11 3/4", n.p., 1914 November 30. Very good. Photographic image (6" X 9") shows minor silvering, but is overall bold and quite striking; heavy mounting board shows slight edgewear and mild age toning. A dramatic head-and-shoulders portrait of a determined-looking Whitman, taken by noted New York photographer Pirie MacDonald, "Photographer of Men." Below his image, on the mounting board, he writes "Yours Truly / Charles S. Whitman / Nov. 30, - 1914." in black fountain pen. Despite mild wear, quite choice and attractive.
