GENERAL ALEXANDER M. HAIG, JR.
Alexander Haig signed this letter, typed on stationery of the Supreme Allied Commander, Europe, to an autograph hunter in 1975.
Typed letter signed "A.M. Haig, Jr." as General, Supreme Allied Commander, 1p, 7x10¼, on stationery of the Supreme Allied Commander, Europe. 1975 February 12. Addressed to Earl Collins, Austin, Texas. In full: "Dear Mr. Collins: In response to the request contained in your recent letter, I am happy to provide the enclosed autographed picture [not enclosed]. It is forwarded to you with my best wishes. Sincerely,". Four-star general Haig (1924-2010), who served in Korea and Vietnam, is credited with keeping the government going while President Richard Nixon was embroiled in the Watergate scandal. In 1968, Secretary of State Henry Kissinger had appointed Haig as military advisor to the National Security Council. In 1973, Haig replaced H. R. Haldeman as Nixon's Chief of Staff, but resigned six weeks after the President to become Supreme Commander of the NATO forces in Europe (1974-1979). In 1981, Haig was named President Ronald Reagan's first Secretary of State, but unexpectedly resigned in 1982, presumably over disagreements regarding foreign policy. He sought the Republican Presidential nomination in 1988. Lightly creased. Fine condition.
