Javits (1904-1986) was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1947. He remained in that position until 1954 when he defeated Franklin D. Roosevelt Jr. to become New York's Attorney General, the only Republican elected statewide that year. He later served four terms in the United States Senate (1957-1981). A close ally of Governor Nelson Rockefeller, Javits was a strong supporter of civil rights legislation, and often supported the policy initiatives of Democratic Presidents. Afflicted with ALS ("Lou Gehrig's disease), Javits lost the Republican primary in 1980 and also failed in a Liberal Party bid in the general election for the Senate seat. Charles Ellsworth "Charlie" Goodell (1926-1987) was an American politician who served the State of New York both as Congressman (1959-1968) and Senator (1968-1971). A World War II and Korean War veteran, Goodell was elected to both positions in office due to the deaths of incumbent members Congressman Daniel A. Reed and Senator Robert F. Kennedy. He served as the congressional liaison assistant for the Department of Justice (1954-1955) and vice chairman (with Gov. William Scranton) of President Gerald Ford's committee to draft rules for granting amnesty to Vietnam era draft evaders and deserters. Lightly toned. Glue visible on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
