DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER
Dwight D. Eisenhower sends a typed letter saying that he is delighted that the telephone company is trying to fight inflation.
Typed Letter Signed: "D.E." as President, 1p, 6¾x8¾. The White House, Washington, 1959 March 19. To Secretary of Commerce Lewis L. Strauss, Washington, D.C. In full: "I am delighted that the American Telephone and Telegraph Company has joined the fight against inflation. And such an impressive number of stockholders!" On November 13, 1958, LEWIS L. STRAUSS was appointed Secretary of Commerce by President Eisenhower. On June 27, 1959, by a vote of 49-46, the U.S. Senate refused to confirm Straussas Secretary of Commerce, the first Cabinet nominee to be rejected by the Senate since 1925. There was opposition to his appointment because of Strauss' role as Chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission (1953-1958). Specifically, in June 1954, J. Robert Oppenheimer, the head of the Los Alamos laboratory for atomic research during WWII, was denied security clearance by the Atomic Energy Commission. There were Senators who voted against Strauss' nomination for that reason alone. Erased pencil notes at upper right and upper left corner. Fine condition.
