He signs a noncommittal typed letter (1981), replying to a constituent's concerns about proposed government restrictions on money market funds.
Typed Letter signed: "Henry Reuss", 1 page, 8½x11. Washington, D.C., 1981 April 27. On his Congressional letterhead as Chairman of the Joint Economic Committee to Richard Weil, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In full: "Thank you for your recent letter, giving me your views on proposals to restrict money market mutual funds. The Domestic Monetary Subcommittee of the House Banking Committee has begun hearings on this subject, and I'll see that your comments are made known to the members of that Subcommittee. Sincerely". Henry S. Reuss (1912-2002) was legal counsel to Milwaukee County, the Office of Price Administration and (after World War II) the Marshall Plan. He earned a bronze star as a US Army infantryman during World War II. Originally a Republican, he switched parties in 1950, indignant at the antics of Senator Joseph McCarthy in his home state of Wisconsin. Reuss himself was elected fourteen terms in the US House of Representatives (1955-1983), where he chaired a series of committees dealing with economic policy. He was the author of several books. In 1942 he married Margaret Magrath, herself politically active as an aide to DC Mayor Marion Berry and in several political action committees, notably Emily's List. Light paperclip crease at center top margin. Normal mailing folds and lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
