Typed Letter signed: "Dean Acheson" as Secretary of State, 1 page, 7x9. Washington, 1951 December 10. On official letterhead to John W. Snyder, Secretary of the Treasury. In full: "Thank you very much for your thoughtful letter of August 28 in which you commend various State Department security officers abroad for the efficient service which they rendered to special agents of the United States Secret Service assigned to the protection of Miss Margaret Truman. I am delighted to have such a splendid report about our representatives abroad and I shall be glad to see these officers are notified of your commendatory remarks, which I know will encourage and please them. Sincerely yours". Dean Acheson (1893-1971) was appointed Assistant Secretary of State by President Roosevelt in 1933, but resigned that same year due to differences with FDR's foreign economic policy. Brought back in 1941 as Under Secretary, he served through World War II and helped forge the postwar Bretton Woods system for the world economy. As Secretary of State (1949-1953) in the Truman administration, he was a key architect of the containment policy, devised to curb the expansion of the Soviet Union and of communism without resort to war. As one of the "Wise Men," informal senior advisors, he advised Presidents Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon (a former foe). During the Cuban missile crisis (October 1961), he was sent to Europe to brief French President De Gaulle and German Chancellor Adenauer. Acheson received a Pulitzer Prize in History (1970) for his memoir Present at the Creation. Normal mailing folds. Fine condition.
