His signature on a card affixed to a sheet with a letter from his US Senate office
Signature: "J W Fulbright", 5x3 card, with typed caption, including date November 27, 1945. Accompanied by an 8½x11 page which also bears a typed letter from his US Senate office promising that an autograph will be forthcoming. Transmittal envelope with Fulbright's stamped frank is affixed on verso. J. WILLIAM FULBRIGHT (1905-1995), a football star at the University of Arkansas and then a Rhodes Scholar, became the youngest President of the University of Arkansas in 1939. After serving one term in the US House of Representatives (1943-1945), Fulbright represented Arkansas as a Democrat in the US Senate for 5 full terms (1945-1975). He chaired the Foreign Relations Committee longer than anyone in history (1959-1974). An early critic of Senator Joseph McCarthy and a strong opponent of US involvement in Vietnam, he also created the Fulbright international exchange scholarships. Ironically, since he had long been opposed by his Party's right wing, his loss to Governor Dale Bumpers in the 1974 Democratic primary proved his vulnerability in the other direction. Fulbright, a segregationist who signed the Southern Manifesto and filibustered civil rights legislation, lost his seat when newly enfranchised black voters cast their votes against him. From the collection Ralph Errington Ward (1926-2009) a fighter pilot and squadron commander in the China-Burma-India Theater of World War II. Ward became President and CEO of Cheseborough-Ponds, Inc., transforming the cosmetics firm into a major home product conglomerate. Toned. Mounting residue on verso. Minor notch at top edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
