Typed sentiment signed "Jimmy Carter". 4¼x2¼ (visible), matted to 20¾x12¾ in a brown imitation leather and blue cloth portfolio with a 5½x7½ (visible) color photo of Carter and 5x7 bio plate. Carter, born in 1924 in Plains, Georgia, served as 39th U.S. President from 1977 to 1981. He was the only one-term Democratic president of the 20th century and the first Democrat not to be reelected since Grover Cleveland in 1888. Carter, the only U.S. president to graduate from the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis (1946, at the age of 21), is also the only U.S. president to serve a full four-year term without making an appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court. Carter is also the first Southerner to be elected president since the Reconstruction after the American Civil War. His presidency was marred by double-digit inflation; a rising prime rate that peaked at 21.5% in December 1980, the last month of his presidency; the 1979 oil crisis, sparked by the overthrow of the Shah of Iran by Ayatollah Ruhollah Musawi Khomeini; and the capture of American hostages by Khomeini-backed revolutionaries in Tehran. His younger brother William Anton "Billy" Carter didn't help his image. Billy was an alcoholic who used his image as the president's brother to promote "Billy Beer". However, Carter also had several notable foreign policy achievements, including the Camp David accords, which resulted in a peace treaty between enemy nations Egypt and Israel, and the second Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty, or SALT II. Carter also began the flow of arms to Islamist rebels in Afghanistan, which had been invaded by the Soviet Union after the 1978 overthrow of a pro-Moscow government there, in 1979. He won the 2002 Nobel Peace Prize for his diplomatic efforts both during and after his presidency. Items in Gallery of History-style portfolio. Items were not evaluated outside portfolio.
