Gerald Ford signs a typed letter of congratulations on the new position at the EPA.
Typed Letter Signed: "Jerry Ford" as Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, 1p, 5¼x8. Washington, 1972 August 3. To W. Ernst Minor, former Assistant to Vice President Agnew. Nixon's second Vice President (1973-1974) and 38th U.S. President writes, in full: "Congratulations on your new position with the EPA. You have my best wishes for every success. While we'll all miss your assistance here in Washington, I certainly appreciate your offer as on 'on-the-scene Advance man' for my Cincinnati visits. Take care, Ernie, and again, best wishes." Gerald R. Ford (1913-2006), who had been a U.S. Congressman from Michigan from 1949-1973, had high hopes for the nation when he became the 38th President of the U.S. (1974-1977) after the resignation of Richard M. Nixon. His 29-month administration, however, was plagued by a severe economic recession and crises both at home and abroad. Record high consumer prices and the highest unemployment figures since the 1930s did little to help his popularity, already damaged by his pardon of Nixon, and the fall of South Vietnam to the Communists damaged American prestige abroad. Ford, who had little support from the Congress, vetoed 66 bills; in turn, Congress overrode his vetoes 12 times, the most since the administration of Andrew Jackson. Ford holds the record as the longest-lived former U.S. President. Horizontal fold just touches the top loop of the "J" and the top of the "d" in Ford. Fine condition.
