MacArthur signed this letter from an autograph hunter in July 1951, just after he was dismissed as UN Supreme Commander in Korea.
Autograph note signed "Hope this may help your collection-/Douglas Mac Arthur". 1 page, 8¼x11. MacArthur signed his signature on a typed and signed letter from Robert O. McNiel of Roanoke, Virginia, dated July 9, 1951 and addressed to MacArthur at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York City. McNiel asked for a personally signed letter to add to his "collection of letters from American Statesmen, Soldiers and Men of Letters, because you are certainly each of these". McNiel added that he already had MacArthur's signature, but wanted a letter from MacArthur for his collection. Accompanied by: Unsigned envelope from "Department of the Army/Suite 1303, 90 Church/New York 7, New York" to McNeil, postmarked New York, New York, July 11, 1951. MacArthur had turned the tide in the Korean War with a risky landing at Inchon in mid-September 1950. His gamble worked, and he pushed the North Korean army north and away from beleaguered Pusan before a massive Chinese counterattack in November. President Harry S. Truman dismissed MacArthur as Supreme Commander of United Nations forces in Korea in April 1951, because of his public statements advocating the invasion of China. He gained widespread popularity in the United States after his dismissal - popularity that cooled after a Senate investigation into his dismissal. MacArthur was Allied Supreme Commander in the South West Pacific (1942) and of Occupational Forces in Japan (1945-1951). He became a Five-Star General of the Army in 1944 and accepted the surrender of Japan aboard the battleship Missouri on September 2, 1945. After his dismissal as UN Supreme Commander in Korea, he campaigned for Dwight Eisenhower during his first presidential run in 1952. Letter and envelope are lightly toned and creased. Letter is folded in half horizontally and twice vertically. Envelope is cut open neatly at top. Otherwise in fine condition.
