The Governor of Arizona signed this first day cover that celebrates the bicentennial of the Declaration of Independence
Philatelic Envelope signed: "Bruce Babbitt", 6½x3¾. First day cover honors the 200th Year Birth of American Independence 1776-July 4-1976, four 13-cent July 4, 1776 stamps affixed, postmarked Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, July 4, 1976, FIRST DAY OF ISSUE. Bruce Babbitt (b. 1938) began his political career as Attorney General for the state of Arizona, an elected position he held from 1975 to 1978. Due to the death of Governor Wesley Bolin, Babbitt was named Governor. He was elected to a second term, allowing him to serve the state until 1987. In a surprising decision during his governorship, Babbitt declined to run for the United States Senate against eventual winner John McCain. He announced his plan to run for the Oval Office in 1988, a campaign that withered that year. In 1993, Babbitt was tapped by newly elected President Bill Clinton to serve as the Secretary of the Interior. He held the position for the entirety of Clinton's tenure. In 2005, the former politician wrote a book, called Cities in the Wilderness: A New Vision of Land Use in America, that proposes a new strategy to conserve our ecosystems. Fine condition.
