PIERRE SALINGER. Typed Letter signed: "Pierre Salinger" as Press Secretary to the President, 1p, 6¼x9¼. Washington, D.C., 1962 December 14. On White House letterhead to Lawrenc [sic?] J. Quirk, New York, N.Y. In full: "This will acknowledge and thank you for your letter of the 8th apprising me of your connection with PHOTOPLAY. It was very good of you to call it to my attention. As you requested, I am returning your copy of FILMS IN REVIEW. Sincerely Yours," Accompanied by unsigned White House envelope typed to same addressee, postmarked Washington, D.C., May 31, 1961. Salinger (1925-2004) served as Press Secretary to Presidents Kennedy and Johnson from 1961 to 1964, when he resigned to run for the U.S. Senate. He won the Democratic primary on June 2, 1964. After California Senator Clair Engle died on July 30, 1964, Salinger was appointed Senator on August 4, 1964, but lost the election that November to former actor George Murphy. Later Salinger was an ABC news correspondent and freelance journalist. He committed an embarrassing gaffe in November 1996, when he claimed to have found a document revealing that TWA Flight 800 had actually been shot down by a U.S. Navy missile test. The "document" turned out to be an internet hoax, after which the term "Pierre Salinger syndrome" was coined to describe the tendency to believe whatever one finds on the net. Lightly creased. Slightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
