Typed Letter signed: "George McGovern" as U.S. Senator, 1p, 6x8. Washington, D.C., 1968 November 19. On personal Senate letterhead to John D. Buchanan, Markham, Ontario, Canada. In full: "I appreciate your thoughtful letter of congratulations. I will try to justify your faith - and that of the people of my State - in my re-election to the Senate. With kind regards, Sincerely,". George McGovern (1922-2012) represented South Dakota in the U.S. House of Representatives (1957-1961) and Senate (1963-1981). He was the Democratic Party's candidate for President in 1972, carrying only Massachusetts and the District of Columbia against President Nixon. Prior to the 1972 Democratic Convention, he had headed a special commission which revolutionized the process of delegate selection, increasing the importance of competing for delegates in state primaries. Motivated to run for President by his opposition to the Vietnam War, McGovern has also long been associated with the problem of world hunger. He administered the Food for Peace program for President Kennedy (1961-1962), represented the U.S. at the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (1998-2001), and became in 2001 the U.N. Global Ambassador on World Hunger. Lightly creased at upper left edge. Slightly soiled in blank upper margin. Otherwise, fine condition.
