VICE PRESIDENT SPIRO T. AGNEW - INSCRIBED PHOTOGRAPH MOUNT SIGNED - DOCUMENT 281486

 
SPIRO T. AGNEW
7¼x9¼color bust photo of Vice President Spiro T. Agnew, mounted to an 11x13¾ sheet of cardstock. Signed to Jilly Rizzo, a longtime friend and aide to Frank Sinatra, on the mount.
Inscribed photograph mount signed "To Jilly - whose good humor makes/Palm Springs even sunnier/Sprio T Agnew". Color, 7¼x9¼ photo, mounted to an 11x13¾ sheet of cardstock. In 1962, attorney Agnew (1918-1996, born Spiro Anagnostopoulos in Baltimore, Maryland), was elected as County Executive of Baltimore County, Maryland, his first public office. The Republican Agnew was an outsider in a predominantly Democratic county. In 1966, Democrats selected an opponent of integration as their candidate for the state's Governor, and Agnew won the governorship. Sworn in as Governor of Maryland in January 1967, Agnew, who became noted for his backing of tax and judicial reforms, resigned on Jan. 7, 1969, after being elected as Richard M. Nixon's Vice President. Reelected to the vice presidency in 1972, he resigned on Oct. 10, 1973 after being charged with accepting $29,500 in bribes while Governor of Maryland, bribes that allegedly continued while he was Vice President, and falsifying federal tax returns. Agnew, who pleaded nolo contendere to the income tax charge in federal court, was sentenced to three years probation and fined $10,000. Disbarred in Maryland, he became an international trade executive after leaving office. Then in 1981, Agnew was ordered by a Maryland judge to pay $247,735 to the state to compensate for bribes and kickbacks received while Governor of Maryland and Vice President from public works contracts. Lightly toned and bowed. Photo is separating from mount. Mount has lightly creased and worn corners and random ink stains. Otherwise in fine condition.
