Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Sid Craig/My appreciation/and warmest wishes/Betty Ford". B/w, 8x10. Betty Ford, born Elizabeth Bloomer (1918-2011), a former dancer and dance teacher, married her second husband, Gerald R. Ford (1913-2006) on October 15, 1948, during his campaign for Congress. She spent nearly 25 years as a Congressional wife and then wife of a Vice President before becoming First Lady (1974-1977). Mrs. Ford expressed her views freely while in the White House, including candid discussion of her own mastectomy. After successfully battling her own chemical dependency, Mrs. Ford established the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, California, to treat others afflicted with this problem. She has written three books, including an autobiography. In 1999, the couple was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Bill Clinton. Slightly creased at blank margins and corners. Minor surface creases (most not evident head on), diagonal crease at the upper portion of the "F" in Ford. Otherwise, fine condition.
