Description

Warren G. Harding was an American politician from Ohio who served as the twenty-ninth President of the United States (1921-1923). This series includes both personal and professional correspondence sent by and to Harding. A number of letters relate to his success as publisher and owner of Ohio newspaper the Marion Star. The series also includes over thirty letters sent from both Warren and his wife (Florence) to Charles R. Forbes, a friend whom Harding appointed head of the Veterans' Bureau. (Forbes later proved to be corrupt and was convicted for improprieties conducted while in office.) Other letters address various political and governmental business, including a group of letters to Frank A. Harrison, who was frustrated with the U.S. representation at the Brazilian International Centennial Exposition of 1922. Two miscellaneous documents and a photograph are housed at the end of the series.
