Signed Color Photograph of Franklin Roosevelt From the 1940 Election Campaign

This photograph ran on the cover of Fortune Magazine in October 1940.

In the election of 1940, Roosevelt tried to become the first president to be elected to three terms of office. His opponent that year was insurgant Wendell Willkie, the most unlikely person ever nominated by a major party. In its issue of October 1940, Fortune Magazine ran an article about the campaign, simply entitled “Roosevelt”. Published with the article was a newly-taken color photograph of the President.

We offer a superb quality 10 1/2 by 13 inch offset print of that photograph, mounted and boldly signed on the mount. This attractive, large photograph is the first color one of F.D.R. that we have had. Roosevelt had every reason to be optimistic, as he would score an impressive victory in the election a month later.
