A Polite Presidential Gem from 1950

If you haven't noticed, we're kind of jazzed about history.

So imagine our completely star-struck state when this little gem surfaced in a file from 1950.

Start at the top.

Read the polite little note.

Analyze the signature ... and ... yup.

Eleanor Roosevelt.

As in, former first lady of the United States.

That one.

History fans, it was a special moment. Yes, she's turning down an invite to LMC's Annual Conference in favor of a trip to Europe, but hey, we salute the League employee who had the hutzpah to invite her in the first place.

Inspired, we're now contemplating expanding our guest list for next year. You never know who may say yes!

In the meantime, don't be an Eleanor (unless, of course, you have a fabulous trip to Europe planned)—register for our 2013 Annual Conference today!
