J. WILLIAM FULBRIGHT
Autograph Sentiment signed in ink on a card with printed border
Autograph Sentiment signed: "With Best Wishes/J W Fulbright", 5 x 3. Ink signature on a card with ornate printed border. 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. Lightly worn on corners. Lightly soiled around edges. Ink note on verso (unknown hand). Otherwise fine condition.
