Nov. 6, 1961. Addressed to Mrs. Florence Varney, Remington Rand, Division of Sperry Rand Corporation, New York City. Varney was a secretary to MacArthur. This letter was sent to her after she resigned from Remington Rand in order to work in public relations. In part: "For the past ten years you have devoted part of your time to secretarial work for me and have acquitted yourself with outstanding efficiency and skill and a depth of loyalty for which I am most grateful." Lightly toned and creased. MacArthur (1880-1964, born in Little Rock, Arkansas) commanded U.S. Army forces in the Far East (1941-1942), becoming Allied Supreme Commander in the Southwest Pacific in 1942. In December 1944, he was promoted to 5-star General of the Army. General MacArthur later accepted the surrender of Japan aboard the battleship Missouri on September 2, 1945. MacArthur became Supreme Commander of United Nations forces in Korea in 1950. After he issued an unauthorized statement containing a veiled threat to expand the war into China if the Communist side refused to come to terms and continued to support an expansion of the war, President Truman relieved MacArthur of his command on April 11, 1951.
