U.S. SENATOR PORTRAYED BY ALAN ALDA IN HIS OSCAR-NOMINATED ROLE IN THE AVIATOR
 
OWEN BREWSTER.
TLS: "Owen Brewster", 1p, 8x10. [Washington, D.C.], 1946 September 25. To Frank C.P. McGlinn, Executive Secretary, Metropolitan Philadelphia Republican Finance Committee, Philadelphia. In full: "After twelve years in Washington in rather unsettled times it is gratifying to have your Boss in the shape of your constituents say 'okay'. I very much appreciate your kind message of congratulations. I hope you will look me up at any time you may be in Washington. I am to be in Philadelphia for the Women's Republican Club Meeting Friday afternoon of this week. Perhaps you may drop in." Governor of Maine from 1925-1929, Republican Ralph Owen Brewster (1888-1961) represented Maine in the U.S. Senate from 1941-1952. When Republicans took control of the Senate (1947-1949), Brewster was Chairman of the Special Committee Investigating The National Defense Program. On this letterhead he is listed as the ranking Republican on that committee. In The Aviator, Alan Alda was nominated for the 2005 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of Sen. Brewster, Chairman of the Special Committee Investigating The National Defense Program. In the movie, in a memorable confrontation between Howard Hughes and Brewster, Hughes (Leonardo DeCaprio) asks the Senator: "Do you really want to go to war with me?" to which Brewster (Alan Alda) replies: "It's not 'me', it's 'The United States Government'. We just beat Germany and Japan. Who the hell are you?" Three minor indentations at left edge from three-ring binder. Fine condition.
