The President replies to congratulations on his recent "mission."
Typed Letter signed: "D. E." as President, 1 page, 7x9. Augusta, (Georgia), 1960 January 3. On White House stationery to "Dear George" [Strecker], in full: "Thanks so much for your note concerning my recent mission. The comments of friends such as yourself mean much to me, and I am grateful to you for taking the trouble to write - and for the generous statements you make. Mamie joins me in best wishes to you and Frances for a fine New Year, and in warm personal regard. Sincerely". Accompanied by original White House mailing envelope. 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. In retirement at his Gettysburg farm, Eisenhower raised prize-winning Angus cattle. In his second term he issued the Eisenhower Doctrine, which provided aid to Middle-Eastern countries threatened by Communist aggression (January 1957), and dispatched troops to protect black youths integrating Little Rock Central High School (September 1957). Before leaving office, he urged vigilance against the rising power of a "military industrial complex." From the collection of George Strecker, an advertising executive at the Chicago Tribune who became close to the Eisenhower's through his wife, Frances, a long-time friend with Mamie Doud Eisenhower. Fold through center. Fine condition.
