Document signed "Richard Nixon" in black ink. With 23 other unidentified signatures in blue and black inks. 1 page, 9½x17, mounted to a same size sheet of cardstock. June 1, 1952. Nixon, who was a member of the class of 1937 for Duke University's Law School, signed this document to honor Justin Miller, a retired Judge on the U. S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. In 1952, Nixon was U. S. Senator from California (1950-1953) and the Republican Party's candidate for vice president (a position that he won that year with President Dwight Eisenhower). Before becoming a Judge on the U. S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia (1937-1945), JUSTIN MILLER (1888-1973) was dean of Duke University's School of Law. RICHARDNIXON (1913-1994, born in Yorba Linda, California) was elected 37th President of the United States in 1968after representing California in the U.S. House of Representatives (1947-1951) and Senate (1951-53) and serving two terms as Dwight D. Eisenhower's Vice President. He lost (1960), then won, extremely close Presidential elections (facing John F. Kennedy and Hubert Humphrey, respectively), then won re-election by a landslide against George McGovern in 1972. His re-election triumph rapidly turned sour, however, as the burgeoning Watergate scandal claimed more and more of his key aides and finally compelled his own resignation in the face of a possible impeachment. On Sept. 8, 1974, he received a blanket pardon from President Ford for any crimes he may have committed against the United States while President. A pragmatic conservative who gained an early reputation as an anti-communist but achieved diplomatic triumphs in relations with China and the Soviet Union, Nixon was a prolific writer in retirement, repairing his reputation and hastening his emergence as an elder statesman. Lightly toned, stained and bowed. Signatures touch but are legible. Tape residue at top and bottom edges and paper loss at bottom edge (do not touch signatures). Otherwise in fine condition.
