EDWARD V. RICKENBACKER
Edward V. Rickenbacker sends a typed letter saying that he will not be able to answer until after the election.
Typed Letter Signed: "Eddie Rickenbacker", 1p, 7¼x10½. New York, New York, 1964 August 28. To William Targ, G.P. Putnam's Sons, New York, New York. In full: "I appreciate very much your writing me as per your letter of August 25th with reference to the contents of your letter of June 26th. To be very frank with you, I am so wrapped up in this Goldwater campaign, with so many irrevocable commitments to speak before organizations from one end of the country to the other - male and female, young and old - for the next sixty days; I have not been able to get my mind on the problem and probably will not until after Election Day. My only hope is that Senator Goldwater will be our next president-elect on the morning of November 4th. Nevertheless, I appreciate your continued interest. Most sincerely," Captain Edward Vernon "Eddie" Rickenbacker (1890-1973) had joined North American Aviation, the parent company of Eastern in 1933 and became its General Manager in 1935, expanding its shipping and travel services. Rickenbacker purchased Eastern in March 1938 and became its President the following month. He remained in Chief Executive positions until his retirement in 1959. "Rick" had attained recognition as a race car driver before commanding the famed 94th "Hat-in-the-Ring" Squadron during WWI. He downed 26 enemy aircraft, becoming America's greatest Ace and received the Congressional Medal of Honor. After the war, Rickenbacker promoted commercial air travel and the advancement of air power for the U.S. military. During WWII, he was a special representative in the inspection of air bases in the Pacific. Horizontal fold touches the top of "E" and "R". Fine condition.
