EUGENE McCARTHY
Letter to a New York banker regarding changes in the income tax, written one year after his first (and strongest) bid for the Presidency
Typed Letter signed: "Eugene J. McCarthy" as US Senator, 1 page, 8x10½. Washington, D.C., 1969 November 21. On Senate letterhead to Miller Moore, Vice President, Bankers Trust Company, New York, N. Y. In full: "I appreciate hearing from you regarding provisions of H.R. 13270, the Tax Reform Act of 1969, and having your views on the proposed changes in the Federal income tax laws. The Senate Committee on Finance agreed on several amendments to the House bill and has now reported the bill for action by the Senate. I will have in mind your views and recommendations as the bill and amendments to it are considered in the Senate. With best wishes, Sincerely yours". Eugene Joseph McCarthy (1916-2005), a U.S. Senator from Minnesota from 1959-1971, later 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. McCarthy remained in the race as a serious contender, but damaged his chances with several gaffes, including the claim that Robert Kennedy's supporters were less intelligent than his own. 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. McCarthy ran quixotic campaigns for President through 1988, and endorsed candidate as diverse as Ronald Reagan (1980) and Ralph Nader (2000). Multiple mailing folds. Paper clip imprint at top left edge. Lightly toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
