Richardson sends thank you for a copy of a speech
Typed Letter signed: "Elliot". 1p. 7x9, Department of State letterhead. Washington, D.C., 1977 November 28. To: Mr. Herman R. Goldberg, Washington, D.C. In Full: "Thank you for sending me a copy of your speech given at the GWU Education Conference. It was thoughtful of you to take the time to send it. At a quick glance, it appears to cover the basic problems in our educational system, and I look forward to reading it more care-fully. With best regards, Sincerely,". At the time of this letter, Richardson was Ambassador at Large and Special Representative of President Jimmy Carter. Elliot Lee Richardson (1920-1999) was Nixon's Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare, Secretary of Defense and Attorney General. On October 20, 1973, President Nixon ordered Attorney General Richardson to dismiss Special Watergate Prosecutor Archibald Cox, who had rejected Nixon's compromise to supply summaries of the "Watergate tapes". Richardson resigned rather than enforce President Nixon's order. He later served as Ford's Secretary of Commerce, his record fourth Cabinet post, from 1976-1977. Ink note (unknown hand) at upper right margin "Rec'd 12/2". Center mailing fold. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
