Harding, Warren G (1865-1923) 29th President of the United States, 1921-1923. Two partly-printed Documents Signed ("W.G. Harding") twice, and accomplished in Harding's hand, two pages, 4 x 7¾", Marion County, Ohio, August 11, 1894 and January 14, 1896. Each document is a "Proof of Publication," which Harding was obliged to sign as the publisher of the Marion Star, a floundering weekly newspaper which he purchased for $300 in 1884 and turned into a successful daily paper, aided by the business acumen of his wife. The actual notices which Harding swears that he published are attached at upper left. One document is in fair condition, with some scattered stains and edge tears away from the signatures; the other is lightly toned, with minor soiling, else fine. All four Harding signatures are signed in brown ink.
Estimated Value $400 - 600.

Realized $230
