PAUL SIMON The United States politician from Illinois penned his signature on this letter Typed Letter Signed: "Paul Simon" as U.S. Representative from Illinois. One page. 6x9. Washington, D.C., Dated April 22, 1981. On letterhead of Congress of the United States, House of Representatives to Mr. John S. Bush, Jr., United States Gypsum Company, Washington, D.C. In Full: "Thank you for sending the copy of your annual report. I was impressed by the statistics and by the obvious commitment to safety and productivity behind them. Please keep in touch. My best wishes. Cordially". Paul Simon (1928-2003) represented Illinois in the House of Representatives (1975-1985) and United States Senate (1985-1997). He sought the Democratic nomination for President in 1988, eventually endorsing Michael Dukakis. When he was just 20 years old, he got together some investors and purchased the flailing Troy Call newspaper. He was the youngest newspaper publisher in the country. Over the next few years he grew his media empire to include over a dozen papers. Throughout his life, he actively campaigned against gambling, depictions of violence to children, and government corruption. During Simon's time with the Illinois House of Representatives (1955-1963), he adopted his signature look of a bowtie and horn-rimmed glasses. Lightly creased with folds, lower horizontal fold underlines signature. Pinholes at upper margin, date stamp at upper right edge, pencil check mark at mid-right margin. Otherwise, fine condition.
