President William McKinley Autograph Album page 1899
- Source: eBay
PRESIDENT WILLIAM McKINLEY AUTOGRAPHED ORIGINAL page from an autograph album measures 3 1/2 x 6. Has signed and also written "Yours Truly Canton O." T is a slight amount of bleed through from the reverse of the sheet The reverse of the sheet is signed by poet NIXON WATERMAN and dated 1899. Waterman has also penned his famous verse "A Rose to the Living" which is slightly haunting considering that McKinley would eventually be assassinated less than two years later at the Pan American Exposition in 1901. McKinley was the 25th President of the United States from 1897-1901. This page was removed from an autograph book which I purchased intact. It contained over 50 signatures which were obtained between 1890-1899. I will be offering some of the others over the coming weeks on e-bay.
