WATERGATE: ARCHIBALD COX and GERALD R. FORD
Archibald Cox and Gerald R. Ford sign a philatelic envelope honoring U.S. servicemen and the 25th Anniversary of U.S. Savings Bonds.
Philatelic Envelope signed: "Archibald Cox" and "Gerald R. Ford", 6½x3½. First Day Cover honoring U.S. servicemen and the 25th Anniversary of U.S. Savings Bonds, 5-cent stamp affixed postmarked Sioux City, Indiana, October 26, 1966 FIRST DAY OF ISSUE. ARCHIBALD COX Archibald Cox (1912-2004) was appointed and later fired as Watergate Special Prosecutor by President Nixon. Attorney General Elliott Richardson resigned, and his deputy, William Ruckelshaus, was fired. Neither would dismiss Cox, who was finally fired by Solicitor General Robert Bork. Cox had asked Nixon to surrender the Watergate tapes. Ironically, his great-grandfather, William E. Evarts, served as President Johnson's Chief Counsel in his impeachment trial proceedings in 1868. 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 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.
