Typed Letter Signed

Los Angeles: 1942.

Fine content war-date T.L.S. 4to. 1 page, Lee De Forest Laboratories, Los Angeles, California, July 21, 1942, to Verne T. Braman, a longtime friend and fellow inventor, in part: "...I am indeed pleased to know that you have landed so fine a job with Packard and are doing your full bit to help annihilate Hitler and Hirohito; also and especially that you have acquired so fine a wife and "ready made" daughter and are very happy over it. It is well that you did not go to work for Minnegowa, because by this time you would probably be feeding on rice and pulling a jinriksha about the streets of Tokyo. You would then probably have cheered when Doolittle flew over, and be bayoneted promptly..." Excellent condition.

American inventor considered the "Father of Radio", and a pioneer in the development of sound-on-film recording used for motion pictures. His greatest invention was the vacuum tube.
