He signs as Member of Congress from Indiana on this 5x3 card
Printed Card Signed in Ink: "E. Ross Adair/Indiana". 5x3 index card with typed caption above and below signature. E. Ross Adair (1907-1983) was a Republican Member of Congress from Indiana (1951-1971). After losing his bid for an 11th term in 1970, he was named US Ambassador to Ethiopia (1971-1974). Adair may have found that assignment "pleasant and stimulating" in 1971, or he may have just been writing as a diplomat, but the experience was soon to change. In the wake of economic disruptions, including a famine which cost 200,000 lives, the government of Emperor Haile Selassie was overthrown in 1974 by a radical military junta which launched a genocidal "red terror" and a disastrous war with neighboring Somalia. Soviet military aid poured into Ethiopia and the US - not for the last time - switched clients in the Horn of Africa, backing the Somalis. Delta Sigma Phi fraternity, founded in 1899, currently has 118 chapters at US colleges and universities nationwide, plus 18 alumni associations. Lightly soiled and creased. Paper residue (previous mounting) on verso - no show through. Otherwise, fine condition.
