Description: Bidders will note that lot(s) with very low Staring Bids & lots where the per item cost is $1-$5, should in no way see those Starting Bids or per item cost of $1-$5 as the Book Barn's judgment on the value of the item(s) contained in the lot(s). We have been in the Used/OP book business for 30+ years & have a LOT of inventory, with more piling up weekly. (Sometimes it seems to us that books breed at night, so there are always more of them over time!) These low Starting Bid/low per item lot(s) are meant to lower our inventory by providing bidders the opportunity to buy material at a low prices—we call it the "Eek" price; as in "Eek! That's all in sold for?" Our lack of storage is your opportunity to buy material at a low price.

COLLECTIBLE SIGNATURE On A 2 1/2 high X 4 inch wide Card Of Indiana Governor & Philippines Ambassador Paul V McNutt. Approximately 2 1/2 inch high by 4 inch wide card signed by Indiana Governor & Philippines Ambassador Paul V McNutt. Boldly signed in ink: "PAUL V MCNUTT"

"Paul V. McNutt (1891-1955) was an American diplomat and Politician who served as Governor Of Indiana, High Commissioner To the Philippines, administrator of the FSC, chairman of the War Manpower Commission & Ambassador to the Philippines". In 1932, up until the very last ballot, he and the Indiana delegation refused to support the nomination of FDR for President. McNutt was dismissive and rude to Roosevelt when he came to personally ask for their support. Roosevelt never forgot the slight, and from then on in private he referred to McNutt as "that platinum blond S.O.B from Indiana." McNutt was a forceful and controversial governor. With an overwhelming Democratic majority in the legislature, he completely reorganized state government, passed a state income tax, was very involved in joining the state to the new federal welfare programs like the new Social Security and worker's unemployment programs. McNutt took up the cause of getting John Dillinger paroled from the Michigan City State Penitentiary. He submitted a false record of Dillinger's criminal and prison activities and excluded two letters from law enforcers. Dillinger was granted clemency and later his murderous crime sprees caused him to be named the first "Public Enemy Number One." An early opponent of Adolf Hitler's Anti-Semitism, McNutt quietly persuaded the US State Department to allow the entry each year into the Philippines of a thousand Jewish refugees fleeing fascism in Europe. The quota was raised to 1,200 in 1939. This was at a time when the refugees could not legally enter the United States itself in large numbers.
