JOHN CAMERON SWAYZE
Swayze handwrote and signed this letter to a "Mr Stanhope", probably in response to who his favorite guest or interview subject was.
Autograph letter signed "John Cameron Swayze". 1 page, 8¼x11, on Swayze's personalized stationery with his Greenwich, Connecticut address. Addressed to "Mr Stanhope". In full: "Dear Mr Stanhope: Sorry, but I have no favorite. Most of them were cooperative but of course most of them wanted the publicity. Sincerely". Swayze interviewed numerous guests and newsmakers during his journalism career, including on the Camel News Caravan. Mr. Stanhope might have asked him which was his favorite. Swayze (1906-1995, born in Wichita, Kansas) was an American journalist. Swayze, whose acting hopes were dashed upon 1929's great stock market crash, began his journalism career as a newspaper and radio reporter and provided voice-overs in 1948 for Camel Newsreel Theatre, a TV show that broadcast Movietone News newsreels. He hosted the first-ever commercial broadcast of the Republican National Convention in 1948 for NBC, then graduated to hosting the Camel News Caravan, NBC's first newscast. But modern audiences probably know him better as the spokeman for Timex's watch commercials, with the now-famous catch-phrase "It takes a licking and keeps on ticking". Lightly toned and creased. Folded twice and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition.
