Description  

Outstanding assemblage of eight bold ink signatures on an off-white 6.75 x 8.5 album page, most dated May 14, 1908, including: steel industrialist Andrew Carnegie, railroad magnate James J. Hill, politician William Jennings Bryan, labor leader John Mitchell, Minnesota governor John Albert Johnson, politician Claude A. Swanson, and Massachusetts governor Curtis Guild, Jr. In fine condition, with brushing to the Mitchell signature. These men were among the group summoned to the White House by President Theodore Roosevelt for the ‘Conference of Governors,’ held May 13–15, 1908, which focused on the importance of conservation and efficient use of national resources. This was a significant early event in the history of conservationism that put it in the public spotlight. Hill is one of the rarest American industrialist autographs in any form, and with the addition of Carnegie, this is a supremely desirable example. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
