JOHN MALCOLM PATTERSON The Governor of Alabama signed this 8x10 bust view black and white photograph of him wearing a suit and tie Photograph inscribed and signed: "With highest personal regards/to Danny Franklin from/John Patterson/Governor of Alabama/1959-1963" in black ink. B/w, 8x10. Democrat John Malcolm Patterson (b. 1921) was elected to serve the state of Alabama as Governor from 1959-1963. Before his tenure in the executive office, he was Attorney General of the state from 1955-1959 and served in both WWII and the Korean War, attaining the rank of Major in the United States Army. He defeated future Governor George Wallace in the Democratic primary in 1958, and was defeated by Lurleen Wallace, George's wife, in the 1966 primary. Outside of his staunch segregationist stance, he was a relatively progressive governor who promoted school and highway construction. In preparation for the Bay of Pigs invasion, President Eisenhower asked Patterson to train the pilots that would man the air invasion. Patterson went on to advise newly-elected President John F. Kennedy on the invasion plans. He was the appointed chief justice for the Special Supreme Court for the case concerning Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, who refused to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the Alabama Court House. Since 2012, Patterson has served as the Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
