JOHN WANAMAKER (1838-1922) 
United States merchant, religious leader, civic and political leader

United States merchant, religious leader, civic and political leader and considered by many as the father of modern advertising and a "pioneer in marketing." Typewritten and signed letter on the "Private Office" stationary of John Wanamaker and dated March 24, 1916. Addressed to Mr. H. E. Paisley of Philadelphia, PA, Wanamaker discusses his feelings regarding the direction of the Brotherhood of Andrew and Philip, a Protestant men's service and prayer organization. He continues by saying that he has chosen to end his association with the organization and "go quietly on in my own way and not disturb the Andrew and Philip procession from going on with the great role that they had chosen for themselves." Signed with his trademark autograph, "John Wanamaker." $195.00*
