Did you know that Walt Disney had a private apartment above the firehouse in Disneyland? As a prize at an Annual Passholder Event in 1995, we won dinner in that apartment which has been preserved since Walt's passing in 1966.

This is a page from my late wife's autograph album. Her family was active in San Francisco theater and politics going back to the early 1900's. The first page features the autograph of Angelo J. Rossi. He served as San Francisco's mayor from 1931 to 1944. Rossi was mayor in an exciting period in San Francisco history when the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco - Oakland Bay Bridge were built, and he presided over the building of Treasure Island and the Golden Gate International Exposition (World's Fair) of 1939 which rivaled the New York World's Fair at that time. He was a strong proponent of the New Deal alphabet-soup roster of work programs. I couldn't find any information on E.M. Gibbons from that era, but he was likely another San Francisco official.
The back side is autographed by Chief Caupolican. Born 1885, he was a baritone, vaudevillian, and actor (appearing in the movie "Whoopee!" in 1930 starring Eddie Cantor) was the first Native American to sing major roles with the Metropolitan Opera. He was the composer of "San Francisco Welcomes You" in 1945 which was a very popular tune at the time. He was dubbed the "World's Greatest Indian Orator and Entertainer" by THE CHAUTAUQUA MANAGERS ASSOCIATION Chicago, IL. Died January 31, 1968. Click here to see the Chief Caupolican autograph.
If you're a fan of San Francisco history or Native American memorabilia, you'll want the autographs of both of these prominent men. Both signed in pencil, and obtained in-person by my wife. We're proud to offer this Angelo Rossie and Chief Caupolican autograph for sale.
