GERALD R. FORD
Gerald R. Ford inscribes a menu from the House of Representatives Restaurant.
Menu inscribed and signed: "To Betty from/Jerry Ford," 4p, 6¼x9¾. House of Representatives Restaurant, U.S. Capitol, Luncheon Menu, 1955 Thursday, February 3. Boldly signed on the cover by the then Michigan Congressman. Samples from the menu: "Broiled Sirloin Steak, French-Fried Potatoes 2.50," "Roast Leg of Spring-Lamb, Pan Gravy, Pan-Roasted Potatoes, and String Beans .95," and "Grilled Lamb Chops, Potatoes 1.75." On back cover is the special recipe of the House Bean soup. 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. Small stain in upper blank left corner, mounting remnant on verso, else fine.
