Those collectors with a political bent may recognize this figure with Gehrig as U.S. Secretary of War George Dern, who evidently attended a Yankees road game—most likely in D.C. against the Washington Senators—in early July of 1935. Just one year later, while still in office, Dern died of complications from influenza. The intriguing photo measures 7" x 9", with very minor surface wrinkles and normal handling wear along the edges and corners. As a side note, George Dern was the grandfather and great-grandfather of actors Bruce Dern and Laura Dern, respectively. Encapsulated by PSA DNA.
