HENRY CABOT LODGE, JR.
His signature on a page bearing a newspaper clipping (and photo) reporting his appointment as US Ambassador to the United Nations
Signature: "H. C. Lodge Jr.", 5½x2¾ paper, affixed to 8½x11page. Affixed to the page is a newspaper report and photo about his appointment by President Eisenhower as US Ambassador to the United Nations. Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr. (1902-1985), the grandson of famed Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, began his political career in the Massachusetts state house of representatives (1933-1936) before serving as a Republican U.S. Senator from Massachusetts (1937-1944 and 1947-1952, his terms split due to his service during WWII). Defeated by John F. Kennedy in 1952, Lodge was appointed by President Eisenhower as Chief of the U.S. Mission to the United Nations in 1953. Having both the rank of Ambassador and a position in Ike's Cabinet, Lodge became influential in the formulation of U.S. foreign policy. His exposure during frequent televised U.N. debates led to his selection as Richard Nixon's running mate for Vice President in 1960, but the ticket lost to Democrats JFK and LBJ. Sent to South Vietnam as Ambassador by President Kennedy and again by President Johnson, Lodge was later dispatched by President Nixon as U.S. Representative at the Paris peace talks on Vietnam. In between Vietnam assignments, he was U.S. Ambassador to Germany. Lodge won the Republican Presidential primary in New Hampshire as a write-in candidate in 1964. From the private collection of Ralph Errington Ward (1926-2009) a fighter pilot and squadron commander in the China-Burma-India Theater of World War II, went on to become President and CEO of Cheseborough-Ponds, Inc., transforming the cosmetics firm into a major home product conglomerate. Toned with unknown stains. Lightly creased. Signed in pencil. Otherwise, fine condition.
