Typed Letter Signed
1 page | SMC 1327

Quick Reference

      Background

      Considering Harding’s past, this letter is appropriately parochial and, considering his future, strangely prophetic: concerning, apparently, a proposed memorial to be erected near the local cemetery.

      It is also, in all probability, the last letter Warren Harding wrote from the White House. He would die, on the road, six weeks later, and be buried in Marion, Ohio, at the local cemetery - the Harding Memorial being exactly where the Memorial, under discussion here, is located.


      Typed Letter Signed, as President, 1 page, quarto, The White House, Washington, June 20, 1923. To George H. Van Fleet in Marion, Ohio. With White House transmittal envelope.
