63 Starr, Frederick. (1858-1933). Anthropologist/ethnologist who did research and field work in Mexico, Central Africa, the Philippines, Japan and Korea. MAGAZINE PORTRAIT INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY ANTHROPOLOGIST FREDERICK STARR.
January 1, 1931. 1931. Good Signed
January 1, 1931.. 1931.. Good. - A sepia-toned magazine portrait, 4-7/8 inches high by 2-3/8 inches wide, is mounted on a piece of cream-colored card, 6-3/8 inches high by 2-7/8 inches wide. Signed on the mount below the portrait: "To Seymour Halpern, / with good wishes, / Frederick Starr / January 1, 1931". The mount is a bit soiled. Good.

The portrait depicts Starr at half-length wearing a suit and bow tie.

Frederick Starr [1858-1933] was an Ameridan anthropologist/ethnologist. He did research and fieldwork in Mexico,Central Africa, the Philippines, Japan and Korea.

The Queens, New York Republican Congressman Seymour Halpern (1913-1997) started his political career as a campaign aide to New York's powerful mayor Fiorella La Guardia and first served in New York's State Senate for 14 years before seeking a seat in the U.S. Congress. In Albany Halpern sponsored 279 bills that became law, including measures on schools, housing, civil rights, nutrition and mental health. A Liberal, he was something of an anomaly as the lone Republican representative from New York City, and generally garnered support from Labor Unions and endorsement from the Liberal Party. Yet he never even considered switching parties as he considered membership in the Republican Party a family tradition and commitment. While he found ample time for his private pursuits, including painting and collecting autographs, he took his legislative duties very seriously. Of these, he was proudest of his co-sponsorship of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and of the original 1965 Medicare legislation.
