HOOVER, HERBERT
HERBERT HOOVER A White House letter signed by Hoover, Washington, February 5, 1931, to Senator Henry F. Ashurst, one of the first Senators from Arizona when it became a state in 1912. Known for his intense love of speaking and using multi-syllabic words, Ashurst was a Senator from Arizona from 1912 until 1941. His eccentricities and dapper attire earned him a cameo role in the 1962 film in Advise and Consent. Hoover states, "I have received your letter of February 4th enclosing a communication from Mr. Forrest E. Doucette, Editor and Manager of the Arizona Year Book. I have sent a note of appreciation to Mr. Doucette." Framed in dark green and deep red double matting in a wood-paneled gilt molding. 19 ½ X 14 ½. [ref:7050]
