DWIGHT DAVID EISENHOWER Eisenhower signed this matted b/w bust view photograph of himself, in a dark suit and tie. This photo was signed to Elmer W. Moore, who was possibly a Secret Service agent from 1945 to 1976. Inscribed photograph signed: "Dwight Eisenhower". B/w, 7¼x9½ visible, 7x6¾ image in 10¾x14 white matte. Captioned above signature: "For: Elmer W. Moore/with appreciation of many courtesies/and with best wishes,". Elmer Moore (1909-2001) was possibly a Secret Service agent. He joined the Secret Service in 1942 and, after a brief stint with Coast Guard Intelligence, returned to the service from 1945 to 1976. He was an agent with the Secret Service under seven presidents. In 1952, Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890-1969) became the fifth General elected President because of his military leadership during wartime (the others were George Washington, Andrew Jackson, Zachary Taylor and Ulysses S. Grant). He headed the Allied Invasion of French North Africa (November 1942-May 1943) and directed the Allied Expeditionary Forces that invaded Normandy on June 6, 1944, recaptured France and overcame Germany. Appointed by President Harry S Truman, he served as Chief of Staff of the United States Army from November 19, 1945 to February 7, 1949. Eisenhower's efforts in that capacity included the unification of the armed services under a centralized command and the demobilization of the wartime army. Eisenhower, who accepted the surrender of Germany on May 7, 1945, became a highly respected officer of the U.S. Army, and his popularity carried him into the presidency. Serving as the nation's 34th President from 1953 to 1961, Eisenhower, like Grant, was a graduate of West Point and had held no previous elective office before becoming President. Ironically, Eisenhower and Grant were the only two Republican Presidents to serve two complete four-year terms until Ronald Reagan took office. Extremely popular, "Ike" was the first U.S. President constitutionally ineligible to run for a third term in 1960. Like Washington and Jackson, Eisenhower became an active farmer after serving his two terms as President. Lightly toned, especially along edges of matte from frame.
