A labor lawyer, GOLDBERG (1908-1990) served as President Kennedy's Secretary of Labor (1961-1962) before being appointed Associate Justice of the Supreme Court. In 1965, he was convinced by LBJ to give up his lifetime Supreme Court appointment to succeed the late Adlai E. Stevenson as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. Goldberg's frustration at the continuing escalation of the Vietnam War prompted him to resign his U.N. post in 1968. McCONAUGHY (1908-2000), who signed as Assistant Secretary of State for Far Eastern Affairs, was a career US Foreign Service officer who served as Ambassador to several Asian nations, including Burma (1957), South Korea (1959-1961), Pakistan (1962-1966) and the Republic of China (Taiwan, 1966-1974). Canadian Hal LAYCOE played hockey for the Boston Bruins (1950-1956) of the National Hockey League, before moving to the coaching ranks. He was head coach of the Portland Buckaroos in the Western Hockey League before assuming the same position with a new NHL franchise, the Vancouver Canucks. While playing for Boston in 1955, Laycoe "high sticked" Montreal Canadiens superstar Maurice Richard, triggering a brawl in which Richard slugged a referee and was suspended for the rest of the season and the playoffs. This incident triggered the "Richard riots" in Montreal, protesting the suspension, with more than 100 fans arrested. Ink notes (unknown hand) on both sides. Print and mounting adhesive on verso show through lightly at Goldberg signature. Frayed left edge where page was removed from a book. Otherwise, fine condition.
