H.R. GROSS
The "Useful Pest" signs his name in blue felt tip on this 3½x2 card.
Signature: "H.R. Gross, M.C/Iowa," 3½x2 card. Harold Royce Gross (1899-1987) was a Republican United States Representative from Iowa's 3rd district, serving for 13 terms. Known for his shrewd, ruthless legislation on government spending, Time magazine named him, "the useful pest." His most infamous denouncements on congressional expenditures include the Marshall Plan, the funeral of President John F. Kennedy, the size of the White House security, The Peace Corps, the U.S. Space Program, foreign aid and even President Dwight Eisenhower's pension rights. While he was the "watchdog of the Treasury," and made fiercely cold decisions in the senate, Gross did acknowledge one flaw of his career as being when he voted "present" for the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, later reflecting that the Vietnam War was too costly. Fine condition.
