Ephemera. SIGNED. Card measuring 7.5 cm x 13 cm. Item #18009
Benson has signed the autograph card above his title of Secretary of Agriculture. With United States Department of Agriculture seal. Near fine condition. There are several tiny pin holes, perhaps from having been pinned to a surface. Ezra Taft Benson (1899-1994) was the thirteenth prophet of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and Secretary of Agriculture (1953-1961) under President Eisenhower. Benson's tenure at the Department of Agriculture coincided with the "Red Scare."
