Typed Letter signed: "Arlen Specter" as U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania, 1 page, 8½x11. Washington, D.C., 1981 April 2. On United States Senate letterhead to Mr. John S. Bush, Jr., Vice President of Governmental Affairs, United States Gypsum Company, Washington, D.C. In full: "Thank you for your letter dated March 20, 1981 and enclosing the 1980 Annual Report of the United States Gypsum Company. I was particularly pleased to note the achievements in productivity, energy conservation and worker safety which you cited in your cover letter. I would be grateful if you would advise me from time to time on any developments or problems in operations within the State of Pennsylvania. We are most anxious to strengthen the Pennsylvania economy and will take appropriate action to do so whenever possible. Sincerely". Arlen Specter (1930-2012), who was assistant counsel to the Warren Commission investigating the assassination of President Kennedy, represented Pennsylvania in the U.S. Senate from 1981 to 2011. He formerly chaired the Select Committee on Intelligence (1995-1997) and the Committee on Veterans Affairs. A political centrist Specter survived a tough Republican Primary against a more conservative challenger in 2004. He became a Democrat in 2009, claiming that the Republican Party had moved too far to the right. He lost the Democratic Senate primary in 2010 to a more liberal challenger, who then lost in the general election to a more conservative Republican (Pat Toomey). Slightly creased with folds, lower horizontal fold at the upper loop of the "A" in Arlen. Staple holes at upper left margin, date stamp at upper right edge, light pencil check mark at right margin. Fine condition.
