DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER
Former President sends thanks and congratulations about a speech the Lewis Strauss gave at the University of Virginia.
Typed Letter Signed: "D. E.", 1p, 7x10¼. On his Gettysburg stationer, 1965 June 2. To his former Secretary of Commerce, Lewis Strauss, Washington, D. C. In full: "Your talk at the University of Virginia was a splendid one. I am tempted to plagiarize freely from it; at the very least I shall keep it on file for some good ideas when next I have to make a speech at a university. Thank you very much for remembering to send it on to me. With warm personal regard, As ever," 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 note (unknown hand) at upper left corner. Fold creases not at signature. Fine condition.
