Signature Removed From The Visitor’s Book From the Office of Philadelphia Mayor Bernard Samuel

Bernard Samuel served as Mayor of Philadelphia from 1941-1952, the longest tenure in Philadelphia’s history (and the last Republican to hold the position).  During that time, his office kept a visitor’s book, recording notables that visited in both official and unofficial capacities.

Offered here is a page removed from Samuel’s book.  It measures approximately 7×9, with a slightly irregular right edge from removal from book.

Frank Sinatra –  “It’s always nice to come to Philadelphia – I like it very much.  Sincerely, Frank Sinatra 1943” with notation, in another hand, of “5/24/43”.

Above Sinatra’s autograph is a signature and inscription from world-champion boxer Barney Ross“To a Grant Mayor of a Grand City / My every good wish / Sgt. Barney Ross” with notation, in another hand, of “5/18/43”.

The verso has been signed by author Arthur Hobson Quinn.
