Color publicity photograph of Gerald R. Ford wearing a suit and tie standing next to an American flag.
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Helen Brandt, good luck and every/best regards./Gerald R. Ford". Color, 7¾x10 overall, image 7¾x7¾ (one surface). Gerald R. Ford (1913-2006), who had been a U.S. Congressman from Michigan from 1949-1973, had high hopes for the nation when he became the 38th President of the U.S. (1974-1977) after the resignation of Richard M. Nixon. His 29-month administration, however, was plagued by a severe economic recession and crises both at home and abroad. Record high consumer prices and the highest unemployment figures since the 1930s did little to help his popularity, already damaged by his pardon of Nixon, and the fall of South Vietnam to the Communists damaged American prestige abroad. Ford, who had little support from the Congress, vetoed 66 bills; in turn, Congress overrode his vetoes 12 times, the most since the administration of Andrew Jackson. Ford holds the record as the longest-lived former U.S. President. Lightly creased not evident head on. Fine condition.
