Typed letter signed: "Caspar W. Weinberger" as Vice President and General Counsel for Bechtel Corporation, 1p, 7¼x10½. San Francisco, California, 1979 June 4. On Bechtel Corporation letterhead to Mr. George R. Sanders, General Manager, KWJJ Broadcasting Company, Enka, North Carolina. In full: "Thank you for your May 28 letter. In response to your request, I am enclosing an autographed photograph for your collection." Photograph not present. Caspar W. Weinberger (1917-2006), a former California legislator and Aide to then-Governor Ronald Reagan, came to Washington in 1970 and quickly established himself as a capable administrator and influential policymaker under Presidents Nixon and Ford. His posts included Chairmanship of the Federal Trade Commission (1970), Director of the Office of Management and Budget (1972-1973) and Secretary of Health Education and Welfare (1973-1975). After a period in the private sector as Vice President of Bechtel (1975-1980), he became Secretary of Defense (1981-1987) under President Reagan, strongly supporting the military buildup of that decade. Although he had long opposed arms sales to Iran, Weinberger was indicted in the "Iran-Contra" affair but pardoned by President Bush (1990). Slightly creased. Light paper clip impression at upper left blank corner. Fine condition.
