A great collection of signatures in different areas of collecting, all in cut signature format and presented within a large photo album by the collector, a photographer named Frank Chemera. The signatures are accompanied by hundreds of original candid photographs taken by Chemera on site during numerous celebrity events. With notables in the realms of politics, entertainment and more, the signatories include: HARRY TRUMAN, ROCKY MARCIANO, LOUIS ARMSTRONG, THOMAS E. DEWEY, ED SULLIVAN, EDWARD G. ROBINSON, LYNN BARI, GLORIA SWANSON, ROCHELLE HUDSON, PATTIE PAGE, FRANCES LANGFORD, PAMELA BRITTON, ANNA ROOSEVELT BOETTINGER, JOHN AGAR, JESSICA DRAGONETTE, PAUL WINCHELL, CARMEL QUINN and others.

Roosevelt, Jr., Buster Crabbe, Mary Pickford, Vic Damone, and many more. Signatures are mounted, overall very good condition. A neat find!
