Franklin D. Roosevelt]
Autographed Luncheon In Honor of Franklin Delano Roosevelt Democratic Nominee for President. Atlanta Biltmore Hotel Atlanta, Georgia. Monday, Oct. 24 1932
[Atlanta]: Atlanta Biltmore Hotel, 1932. Broadside. Good. Broadside. Menu. Approx. 8" x 5". Sketched portrait of F.D.R. with list of foods served at the luncheon. Signed in pencil by Roosevelt next to his portrait and at the top of the menu. Some light foxing to the front. Brown toning, stains on the blank verso (menu was possibly removed from a scrapbook or some other like collection). Roosevelt stopped in Atlanta in October 24th to give a speech. An excerpt from speech found on the web site georgiainfo dot galileo dot usg dot edu follows: The great warmth of your welcome reinforces the obvious fact that so far as carrying on a campaign to get votes, my visit to this state has not been necessary. However, the purpose of coming down here is not to get votes. My visit to the south is to carry out the purposes of my trips to the west, to the coast and indeed throughout the country, which is not so much to be heard as to hear, and not so much to talk to you as to let you talk to me. It was only natural that in coming to the south I should have as an additional objective a visit to Warm Springs where I have spent so many hours and where I have had the good fortune to make so many friendships that I shall always cherish through life.
