GERALD R. FORD
Gerald R. Ford signs a bookplate in black ink.
Gold-bordered Bookplate signed: "Gerald R. Ford", 3¼x4½. Gilt imprint of the Presidential Seal at top center above the words: "Gerald R. Ford/38th President of the/United States of America". Gerald R. Ford, 38th U.S. President from 1974-1977, has written two books: Portrait of the Assassin with John R. Stiles (1965) and A Time to Heal (1979). The Lord John Press has published his speeches: Global Stability (1981) and Churchill Lecture (1984). This bookplate was created for his memoirs, A Time to Heal. On August 9, 1974, Gerald R. Ford (1913-2006) was sworn in as the nation's 38th President following the resignation of Richard Nixon. Ford had previously served as Nixon's Vice President (December 6, 1973-August 9, 1974) following the resignation of Vice President Spiro Agnew, becoming the only man to have held both of the nation's highest offices without being elected to either. Ford, who was previously a U.S. Congressman from Michigan (1949-1973; Minority Leader, 1965-1973), lost his bid for election to a full four-year term partially as a result of his controversial pardon of his predecessor. Ford, who was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1999, celebrated his 93rd birthday on July 14, 2006. Before his death on December 26, 2006, Ford had surpassed Ronald Reagan (who also lived to age 93) as the longest-lived former U.S. President. Fine condition.
