GENERAL LYMAN L. LEMNITZER
This very rare piece is a laminated White House staff photo pass with a color bust photo of General Lyman L. Lemnitzer, who was on the Joint Chiefs of Staff from 1960 to 1963.
Ephemera unsigned. 2½x3½ overall with 2x1½ color image, rounded corners. Laminated White House staff credentials with clip hole near top edge. This pass is a rare piece, as White House credentials don't often appear on the market. In June 1942, Lemnitzer (1899-1988) was promoted to Brigadier General in command of the 34th Anti-Aircraft Brigade and soon received appointment as Assistant Chief of Staff of the Allied Forces Headquarters under General Dwight D. Eisenhower in London. After aiding in the planning of the North African invasion, he resumed command of the 34th in February 1943 and led it in the opening phases of General Patton's Sicilian Campaign. In late June 1943, he became Deputy Chief of Staff of the Allied 15th Army Group (U.S. 7th, British 8th) under General Sir Harold R.L.G. Alexander. He was promoted to Major General in November 1944. After the war, Lemnitzer was Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (1960-1963) and Supreme Allied Commander of NATO (1963-1969). Void holes in left and right edges, which touch image. Otherwise in fine condition.
