Title: Signed Program.
Signed: Signed by Author(s)
President Grant's namesake grandson, child of his eldest son Frederick; ironically, he too was a West Point graduate and rose through the ranks until he achieved major general; also ironically, just as his grandfather died shortly after completing his "Memoirs" and never saw the finished product, so too did Grant 3rd die shortly after completing a biography of his grandfather. Signed Program, 4pp, 4 3/4" X 6¼", Chicago, IL, 1959 May 20. Near fine. Printed program (blue ink on grey stock) for the Civil War Round Table -- their "181st Regular Meeting" with front wrapper noting "Maj. Gen. U.S. Grant III, U.S.A., Ret'd." and Karl S. Betts (executive director of The Civil War Centennial Commission) as the evening's speakers. Grant signs boldly in blue fountain pen across the top of the front wrapper. Inside text pages (age toned from long-ago newsprint contact) introduces their topic -- "A Centennial for All Americans" -- and gives a mini-biography of each. Rear wrapper lists the organization's officers, etc. Interesting, unusual item. Bookseller Inventory # 33212
