[NY?]: nd [1887?]. Broadside lithograph portrait, 28 1/2 x 21 in., of Frederick Dent Grant (1850-1912), oldest son of President Ulysses S. Grant, is shown from mid-chest, his head turned one quarter turn to the right, wearing a double breasted coat and sporting a small star pin just below his collar. His name appears in large, bold letters below his portrait. The image is creased from folding, a tear or two along the folds at the margins, with some small holes and closed tears slightly affecting his forehead and collar area at the folds; small pinholes at each corner evidence of once having been posted. Presumably this is a campaign poster from his unsuccessful run for the office of Secretary of State for New York on the Republican ticket in 1887. A graduate of West Point in 1871, Grant later served as Minister to Austria-Hungary during the administration of President Benjamin Harrison, and as New York City Police Commissioner. He died in New York City in 1912. Item #61492
