GERALD FORD and BETTY FORD
Gerald and Betty Ford sign a first day cover honoring the 50th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution.
First Day Cover signed: "Gerald Ford" and "Betty Ford", 6½x3¾. First Day Cover honoring the 50th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, 6-cent Woman Suffrage stamp affixed, postmarked Adams, Maine, August 26, 1970, FIRST DAY OF ISSUE. In the year this stamp was issued, Ford was a Congressman from Michigan and House Minority Leader. 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 the age of 93) as the longest-lived former U.S. President. He had married BETTY BLOOMER WARREN (born in 1918) on October 15, 1948 and the couple had four children. Mrs. Ford was known for her outspokenness on controversial topics, including her battle with breast cancer and her addictions to alcohol and drugs, which led to the establishment of the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, California. In 1999, the couple was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Bill Clinton. Light glue stain at Betty Ford's signature (completely legible). Lightly creased, lightly rippled at cachet. Red pinhead-size ink mark to right of cachet, pencil erasures at right margin. Overall, fine condition.
