SPIRO T. AGNEW
11x14 color publicity photograph of Spiro Agnew in a grey suit and tie.
Photograph signed: "Spiro T. Agnew ". Color, 11x14. In 1962, Republican attorney Spiro Theodore Agnew (1918-1996), born Spiro Anagnostopoulos, was elected as County Executive of Baltimore County, Maryland, his first public office. 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 January 7, 1969, having been elected as Richard M. Nixon's Vice President. Reelected to the vice presidency in 1972, Agnew resigned on October 10, 1973 in the face of charges that he had accepted $29,500 in bribes while Governor of Maryland (and allegedly continued to receive bribes while Vice President) and falsified 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. Fine condition.
