The United States First Lady answers an admirer's request about autographing her book Nancy
Typed Letter Signed: "Nancy Reagan", 1p, 7¼x10½. Pacific Palisades, 1980 June 12. To Mr. Stanhope. In full: "It was a pleasure to receive your recent letter and request to autograph a copy of 'Nancy". Please send your copy of the book to my office at 981 Airport Boulevard, Suite 1430, Los Angeles, California 90045, and I shall be happy to honor your request. I hope you will enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. Thank you for your good wishes. Sincerely" . Nancy Davis Reagan (1921-2016) was an actress and First Lady who married U.S. President and actor Ronald Reagan in 1952. When both were actors, she noticed that her name was on the Hollywood blacklist, associating her with the Communist Party. An affiliation with the Communist Party would mean the end of her career, so she consulted with film director Mervyn LeRoy. LeRoy connected her with Screen Actors Guild President Ronald Reagan in 1949, who assured her that there were multiple actresses named Nancy Davis and that he would make sure her name was removed from the blacklist. As an actress, Nancy appeared in film and television roles including The Next Voice You Hear… (1950) and Hellcats of the Navy (1957). The latter film is the only film collaboration between Nancy and Ronald. The two also appeared in an episode of the Zane Grey Theatre (1956-1961) together in 1961. She became the First Lady of California (1967-1975) and the First Lady of the United States (1981-1989) as her husband became an elected official. In the White House, Nancy became an influential force. She renovated the White House and, following an assassination attempt in 1981, threw herself into protecting the President. Her influence on the decision-making process for the President was unprecedented. As First Lady, she also launched the "Just Say No" anti-drug program. Mrs. Reagan was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2002. Fold creases not at signature. Otherwise, fine condition.
