EDMUND S. MUSKIE. Typed Letter signed: "Ed" as U.S. Senator, 1p, 8x10½. Washington, D.C., 1968 September 13. On Senate letterhead to William R. Raiford, Ferris & Company, Washington, D.C.. In full: "Thank you so very much for your most thoughtful letter of August 30. In facing the difficult campaign days ahead, Jane and I will be strengthened in knowing our old friends are with us. Our best regards to you. Sincerely". Edmund Muskie (1914-1996), a navy veteran of World War II, was Governor of Maine (1955-1959) and U.S. Senator from that state (1959-1980). He was the Democratic Party's Vice Presidential nominee in 1968, and the early frontrunner for the Presidential nomination four years later until, during the New Hampshire primary, he appeared to cry while defending his wife from a harsh newspaper attack. As a Senator, Muskie was a principal architect of the landmark environmental legislation of the early 1970s, working successfully to build bipartisan support for it. Muskie concluded his public service as U.S. Secretary of State (1980-1981). Fine condition.
