Lot 52: Fantastic set of ink signatures, "William McKinley," "Ida McKinley," "Theodore Roosevelt, May 13th 1905," and "Charles W. Fairbanks, May 13, 1905," on an off-white 5.5 x 5.75 sheet. Double-matted and framed with three portraits and nameplates affixed to the glass to an overall size of 19 x 20. In fine condition. The McKinleys would have signed this much earlier than Roosevelt and Fairbanks; Roosevelt was McKinley's vice president, and ascended to the presidency with McKinley's assassination in 1901. Fairbanks became Roosevelt's vice president beginning in 1905.
