GERALD R. FORD
Gerald R. Ford signed this souvenir typescript as the last surviving member of the Warren Commission in 1998. In it, he says that he agrees with the findings of the commission: that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone assassin of President John F. Kennedy.
Typescript signed "Gerald R. Ford/6/8/98" in blue ink. 6¼x8¼, on Ford's personalized stationery with a gold-colored Great Seal of the United States at top. In full: "In 1964, the Warren Commission unanimously decided: 1. Lee Harvey Oswald was the assassin, and 2. The Commission found no evidence of a conspiracy, foreign or domestic. As a member of the Commission, I endorsed those conclusions in 1964 and fully agree now as the sole surviving Commission member." President Lyndon Baines Johnson appointed the Warren Commission on Nov. 29, 1963 to investigate the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Gerald Ford, then a U. S. Representative from Michigan's 5th Congressional District, was a member of this seven-member commission. On Aug. 9, 1974, Ford (1913-2006, born Leslie Lynch King, Jr. in Omaha, Nebraska) was sworn in as the nation's 38th President (1974-1977) following the resignation of Richard Nixon. Ford had previously served as Nixon's Vice President (1973-1974) 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. He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1999. Ford was the nation's longest-lived former President, passing Ronald Reagan, who also died at the age of 93. Signature has bled lightly, but is legible. Otherwise in fine condition.
