GERALD R. FORD
Philatelic envelope of Ford's winning his first presidential primary.
Philatelic Envelope signed: "Gerald R. Ford", 6½x3½. 13-cent Colonial Flag-Independence Hall U.S. stamp affixed, postmarked Keene, New Hampshire, February 24, 1976. Printed address to stamp dealer C. Sarzin in New York. The results of the February 24, 1976 New Hampshire presidential primary, the first in the nation, are noted with pictures of the leading vote-getters in Keene, N.H.: (Republican) Ford 1,985, Reagan 888; (Democrat) Udall 533, Carter 392. President Ford won the N.H. Primary and the 1976 Republican nomination. Even though Arizona Congressman Morris Udall won in Keene, he lost the statewide primary to Carter, who received the 1976 Democratic nomination and defeated Ford in the November election. 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 had also lived to age 93) to become the longest-lived former U.S. President. Fine condition.
