INSCRIBED BY PRESIDENT EISENHOWER TO AL CAPP

EISENHOWER, Dwight D. Inscribed photograph. Minneapolis, circa 1955. Image measures 7 by 7 inches; entire sheet measures 7-1/2 by 10 inches. $1250.

Original photograph of President Eisenhower with cartoonist Al Capp, inscribed by the President, “For Al Capp, Regards, Dwight D. Eisenhower.”

The picture shows Eisenhower and Capp (creator of the “L’il Abner” comic strip) with Marvin Kline, former Mayor of Minneapolis, and a “poster boy” for the Sister Kenny Foundation, located in Minneapolis. The Sister Kenny Foundation pioneered new treatments for Polio in this country in the 1940s; Kline was its president; Al Capp, in his capacity as honorary chairman of the foundation, provided it with artwork and made numerous public appearances on its behalf.

A fine copy.
