HAROLD BROWN. Signature: "Harold Brown", 5x3½ card printed with patriotic symbols. Secretary of Defense in the Carter administration (1977-1981), Brown was the first scientist to occupy the post. His resumé included a Ph.D. in Physics from Columbia, years spent as a research scientist, and eight years in the Defense Department under Secretary McNamara (1961-1969, Secretary of the Air Force 1965-1969). As Secretary of Defense, he sought to balance the President's goals of cost-cutting and arms limitation with new weapons procurement (such as the go-ahead for "stealth" technology) and new strategic doctrines, notably the controversial Presidential Directive 59 (planning for limited nuclear war against the Soviet Union). Fine condition.
