A U.S. Senator at this time, Tower had been elected to the post in a special election to fill the vacancy caused by Lyndon B. Johnson being elected as JFK's Vice President. The first Republican U.S. Senator from the state since 1870, Tower served until resigning in 1989. In 1986, he was appointed by President Ronald Reagan to head the President's Special Review Board (which became known as the Tower Committee) to investigate the actions of the National Security Council and its staff during the Iran-Contra affair. Reagan also appointed Tower as the chief U.S. negotiator for the Strategic Arms Reduction Talks in Geneva, and President George H. Bush nominated him as Secretary of Defense, but the nomination was not confirmed. ROBERT W.

Rising through the ranks, he served as President (1955-1958) and Chairman of the Board (1958-1965). Sarnoff was also responsible for the diversification of RCA, buying Random House, Hertz and Banquet foods. He served as a Director for RCA (1957), its President (1966), CEO (1968) and Chairman of the Board (1970-1975). Lightly soiled. Upper right blank corner of Sarno's letterhead chipped off. Letterhead lightly shows through. Page numbers written (unknown hand) at lower corners. Overall, fine condition.
