B/w, 10¼x13½ overall, image 8x10 (one surface). SAMUEL KERNS McCONNELL, JR. (1901-1985) was a Republican Congressman from Pennsylvania from 1944-1957. He left office nine months after the end of Eisenhower's first term to serve as Executive Director of the United Cerebral Palsy Associations, Inc., holding the office until June 1961. WWII hero and former Allied Supreme Commander DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER (1890-1969) was as successful in politics as he was in war. Eisenhower, who was elected the nation's 34th President (1953-1961) in 1952, was determined to bring order and efficiency to the Administration in a new era of "dynamic conservatism". His domestic program, termed "Modern Republicanism", called for greater state government power, reduced federal intervention in the economy, revamped tax laws, increased Social Security benefits and improved interstate highways. Fulfilling a campaign pledge, Eisenhower went to South Korea following his election and subsequently oversaw the truce that ended the Korean War (1950-1953). He delivered his "Atoms for Peace" proposal to the United Nations in December 1953 and led the formation of the Southeast Asia Treaty Organization the following year. Despite having suffered a serious heart attack in September 1955, Eisenhower won re-election by a landslide in 1956. Ink slightly beaded, smudged at 2 words. Fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 18¼x29¼.
