NORMAN E. BORLAUG
Nobel Peace Prize winner Norman E. Borlaug signed and dated this index card "With best wishes" in 1976
Autograph Note signed "For Bruce Weiss/With best wishes/Norman E. Borlaug/May 28, 1976" in blue ink. Blue ink and lead pencil notations on verso in unknown hand. 5x3 ruled index card. American agricultural scientist Borlaug (1914-2009) was raised on an Iowa farm, so it seems appropriate for him to be awarded the 1970 Nobel Peace Prize for his role in developing high-yield, disease resistant grains that increased food production in developing countries. These efforts earned him the title "Father of the Green Revolution". Without these breakthroughs, the massive famines predicted for the late twentieth century certainly would have occurred. Because of this, it's been said that Borlaug saved more lives than any person who ever lived. Incidentally, only 5 people have won the "trifecta" of a Nobel Prize, a Presidential Medal of Freedom (1977) and a Congressional Gold Medal (2006). You may have heard of the other four: Martin Luther King, Jr., Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela and Elie Wiesel. Lightly toned and creased. Stray ink marks at lower margin. Otherwise in fine condition.
