Carl Van Vechten, (June 17, 1880 – December 21, 1964), original, vintage, calling card with hand written inscription by Van Vechten.

Van Vechten, the celebrated American writer and photographer, was the literary executor of Gertrude Stein and a key figure of the Harlem Renaissance movement. He captured iconic images of all the key members in the worlds of Art, Theater, Music, and Literature. Van Vechten viewed his photography as a hobby; he never took commissions, he never sold photographs. He would grant permission to publish them, but had strict requirements to do so. He was a prominent fixture in 20th century photography collections with his work being included in such institutions as The Library of Congress, The Museum of The City of New York and The Smithsonian Institution.

The personal calling card, measuring 2.5 x 3.5 inches includes the inscription: "It is very pleasant to remember you have worked in The Canteen / first the first Tuesday in November 1942 and this is the first Tuesday in 1943!" In fine condition.
