Typed Letter signed: "Ike", 1 page, 7x10¼. Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, 1965 October 23. On personal letterhead to Lewis L. Strauss, Washington, D.C. In full: "General Nevins tells me he has already filled out all the information now available to him for the HERDWATCHER. The only thing he still has to find out is whether our accountants (Haskins and Sells) have used the same scale for depreciation as you do. I did not know that this item was on the HERDWATCHER reference list but at least he is sending me everything he can and will send the rest of it very promptly. Both of us are grateful for your kindness. Devotedly, [signature] P.S. Don't forget the little black and white pictures!". 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. Staple holes at upper right. Mailing folds, not at signature. Overall, fine condition.
