GERALD R. FORD
Gerald R. Ford sends a typed letter in reply to organized crime.
Typed Letter Signed: "Jerry Ford" as House Minority Leader, 1p, 8x10½. Washington, D.C., 1967 March 7. To constituent Larry Miller, Cedar Springs, Michigan. In full: "Many thanks for your letter of March 1 with your questions about organized crime in Grand Rapids. Although I am a legal resident of East Grand Rapids and I am deeply concerned with everything that goes on in Kent and Ionia County, I am not in a position to give the best answer to this question. May I suggest that you submit your questions to the Chief of Police in Grand Rapids or to our County Sheriff. In fact, you may want to talk to someone in the police department or in the sheriff's department. I am certain that by this means you will get the best answer to your question. Warmest personal regards, Sincerely," 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. Creased. Horizontal fold touches the top of "J" and "F". File note at upper left (unknown hand).
