Hoover, Herbert. Typed Letter Signed, as a member of the "National Committee On Food For The Five Small Democracies," 1 page, quarto, New York, December 13, 1940. On official letterhead, to Bishop Herbert Welch of the Methodist Episcopal Church on Fifth Avenue in New York, thanking him for accepting membership on the committee. In part, "…I trust we may be of service in preventing a great tragedy…we must make every effort and we must express American concern with their plight…." Faint soiling, else fine. Hoover's heroic efforts during World War I, as head of the Commission for Relief in Belgium, succeeded in saving ten million people from starvation. As World War II engulfs Europe, Hoover reprises his efforts to save millions from starvation.
Estimated Value $200 - 300.

Realized $115
