Esther J. Lichtmann (1892-1990) was a teacher of music at the Master Institute of United Arts, a New York art school founded by her brother, Maurice Lichtmann, as well as Russian painter and mystic, Nicholas Roerich. Along with Louis Horch, who was a director and financier of the Master Institute, Lichtmann was greatly involved in the Roerich Circle, which was instrumental in the development and passage of the Roerich pact, an inter-American treaty which ensured the protection and defense of cultural and artistic monuments from military destruction, and was signed into law by Roosevelt in 1935. Comes with my Franklin D. Roosevelt autograph study.
