That’s an absolutely incredible United States of travel documents all issued in 1926 for a lady who became a US citizen in 1923 but a US passport was denied by US authorities because somehow she lost US citizenship. Now, the most important fact is that the Affidavit of Identity and Nationality is authenticated and signed by Florence E. S. Knapp as Secretary of State of the State of New York. She was a very prominent American politician who was the first woman elected to a state cabinet office in New York state.
Also, the above mentioned document was certified by the US Department of State being signed by Frank B. Kellogg as Secretary of State. He was an American lawyer, politician, and statesman who served in the U.S. Senate and as U.S. Secretary of State. He co-authored the Kellogg–Briand Pact, for which he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1929.
