LEE de FOREST
He signs his support for the Bricker Amendment
Document Signed: "Lee de Forest", 3¾x8½. He has signed below a typed pledge which reads, in part: "I am supporting the Bricker Amendment and urge you to do so also." Lee de Forest patented more than 300 inventions in wireless telegraphy, radio telephony, sound-on-film talking pictures, high-speed facsimile transmission, television, radiotherapy and related areas. One of his most important inventions was the vacuum tube that was used in radios and televisions. Beginning in 1951, Senator John Bricker of Ohio, who had been the Republican Vice Presidential candidate in 1944, began introducing a series of proposed constitutional amendments limiting the President's authority to negotiate executive agreements with foreign powers and declaring that no international treaty could take precedence over the US Constitution in US courts. Opposed by President Eisenhower, the Bricker amendment failed in the US Senate by a single vote in 1954. Interesting evidence of inventor de Forest's interest in politics. Fine condition.
