JACOB K. JAVITS On this black and white photograph, the United States Congressman penned his signature Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Maria Ayer/ & her classmates/ English/ 8 SP 3/ JHS 74/ With/ best wishes/ & regards/ J K Javits USS/ NY/ '68". B/w, 8x10 overall, image 6½x8¼ (one surface). Jacob K. Javits (1904-1986) was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1947. He remained in that position until 1954 when he defeated Franklin D. Roosevelt Jr. to become New York's Attorney General, the only Republican elected statewide that year. He later served four terms in the United States Senate (1957-1981). A close ally of Governor Nelson Rockefeller, Javits was a strong supporter of civil rights legislation, and often supported the policy initiatives of Democratic Presidents. Afflicted with ALS ("Lou Gehrig's disease), Javits lost the Republican primary in 1980 and also failed in a Liberal Party bid in the general election for the Senate seat. He received a Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1983. Lightly creased. Binder hole nicks at right edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
