Cover Page In Part: “Inaugural Ball/In Honor of/The President of the United States/Dwight David Eisenhower/The Vice President of the United States/Richard Milhous Nixon”. Twenty-nine years after his 1915 West Point graduation, Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890-1969) received his fifth star and the rank of General of the Army in 1945. A year earlier he was appointed Supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Forces and placed in command of the Normandy invasion Operation Overlord. An experienced leader, "Ike" commanded the U.S. Army in Europe from June 1942 to December 1943, during which time he directed the invasions of North Africa (November 1942) and Sicily (July-August 1943). On May 7, 1945, Eisenhower accepted the unconditional surrender of Germany at Rheims. Eisenhower ran for President on the Republican ticket in 1952, eventually serving two terms. Achievements while in the Oval Office include his famous "Atoms for Peace" plan to the United Nations (December 1953), the Eisenhower Doctrine which provided aid to Middle-Eastern countries threatened by Communist aggression (January 1957), and the protection of the Little Rock Nine when they tried to attend the local public school (September 1957). Eisenhower's rank of Five-Star General of the Army was restored in 1961, two months after his presidential term ended. The liberal Republican is generally considered to be one of the best Presidents of all time. Richard M. Nixon (1913-1994) was elected 37th President (1969-1974) of the United States in 1968 after serving the country in various other capacities, including terms in the House of Representatives (1947-1951), the Senate (1951-1953), and as Eisenhower's Vice President. A pragmatic conservative who gained an early reputation as an anti-Communist, Nixon achieved diplomatic triumphs in relations with China and the Soviet Union. At home, Nixon initiated plans to improve the environment and added four conservative justices, including Chief Justice Warren E. Burger, to the U.S. Supreme Court. His Presidential re-election triumph in 1972 rapidly turned sour as the Watergate scandal claimed more and more of his key aides and finally compelled his own resignation. He became the first United States President to resign from office. He was pardoned for his part in the scandal by successor Gerald Ford on September 8th. Months before Nixon resigned, he made the historic announcement that a cease-fire on January 27 would end American involvement in the long and devastating Vietnam War. His prolific writings in his retirement years helped repair his reputation and hastened his re-emergence as an elder statesman, but the Watergate Scandal is still remembered as one of the most notorious events in the history of the Oval Office. Unsigned. Slight vertical crease down center. Pages lightly toned. A few minor wear marks on individual pages. Otherwise, fine condition.
