HAROLD E. HUGHES
Signing as a US Senator, shown in conversation with a colleague
Inscribed photograph signed: "To Michael/Harold E. Hughes/U.S.S./Iowa". B/w, 8x10. A combat veteran of the European theater in World War II, Harold Hughes (1922-1996), a Democrat, was Governor of Iowa (1963-1967) and US Senator from that state (1969-1975), declining to run for re-election. A liberal Democrat, Hughes announced for the Democratic Presidential nomination in 1972, but - hating the requisite fundraiser - he dropped out early. Believing that AA membership and a religious awakening had turned his life around in the early 1950s, Hughes stressed those themes throughout his life. He held Senate hearings on alcohol awareness, and sponsored creation of the National Institute of Drug Abuse. After retiring (by choice) from the Senate, he joined former Nixon aide Charles Colson in his religious work, and appeared as himself in the Colson biofilm Born Again. Light surface creases. Signature lightly beaded, but legible. Otherwise, fine condition.
