EUGENE J. McCARTHY. Typed Letter signed: "Eugene McCarthy" as U.S. Senator, 1p, 8x10½. United States Senate, 1962 March 30. To NORMAN THOMAS, Chairman Institute of International Labor Research, Inc., New York, N.Y. In full: "I have received your letter regarding the possibility of my meeting with Daniel Oduber when he is in Washington next month. I would be pleased to meet with him. Since I do not know what the Senate schedule will be this far in advance, I cannot make a definite appointment. However, if you call my office nearer to the date, I am sure we can arrange a time. Sincerely yours." McCARTHY (1916-2005), U.S. Senator from Minnesota from 1959-1971, sought the Democratic nomination for President in 1968, running as an anti-Vietnam War candidate. His defeat of President Johnson in the March New Hampshire primary led to New York Senator Robert Kennedy's candidacy and Johnson's decision not to seek reelection on March 31st. At the Democratic National Convention held in Chicago, August 26-29, 1968, incumbent Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey won the presidential nomination on the first ballot with 1,761¾ votes to McCarthy's 601 and South Dakota Senator George McGovern's 67½. At the 1972 Democratic National Convention, McCarthy received two votes; the nomination went to McGovern on the first ballot. NORMAN THOMAS (1884-1968) ran for President six times as the candidate of the Socialist Party (1928-1948). In later years he was a respected figure on the moderate left. Daniel ODUBER Quiró was to become President of Costa Rica (1974-1978). Slightly creased. Two faint nail head sized stains in blank left margin. Horizontal fold crosses tails of "g" and "y" in signature. Otherwise, fine condition.
