GOVERNOR DAVID C. TREEN
The Governer signed this letter, typed on his personalized House of Representatives letterhead in 1973, to the Department Of Health, Education And Welfare. In it, Treen asks about federal funding for a Bilingual Career Education Center.
Typed letter signed: "David Treen" as Member of Congress. Date stamp in blue ink near bottom right corner. 1 page, 8x10¼, on Treen's personalized letterhead from the U. S. House of Representatives. June 5, 1973. Addressed to Dr. Herman Goldberg, Associate Commissioner For Equal Educational Opportunity, Department Of Health, Education And Welfare, Washington, D.C. In full: "Dear Dr. Goldberg: Enclosed is a copy of a self-explanatory letter which I have received from Louisiana State Superintendent of Education, Louis J. Michot. I would appreciate your looking into the matter discussed in the enclosure and advising me of the state's eligibility to receive ESAA funds for a Bilingual Career Education Center. With many thanks for your help, i am very truly yours,". David C. Treen (1928-2009) was U. S. Representative from Louisiana's 3rd District (1973-1980) as well as Louisiana's first Republican governor since Reconstruction (1980-1984). His term as governor saw the appointment of more blacks to office than in any previous election and the creation of the Louisiana School for Math, Science and the Arts and the state Department of Environmental Quality. Treen's political career could be characterized by the saying, "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again." And he had tried, unsuccessfully, to unseat Democrat Hale Boggs from Louisiana's 2nd Congressional District seat three times in the 1960s - this at a time when the number of registered Republicans in Louisiana was miniscule. He also had an unsuccessful run for Governor in 1972 and as 1960 presidential nominee for the Louisiana States' Rights Party. Lightly toned and creased. Staple holes in top left corner. Folded twice and unfolded. Otherwise, fine condition.
