Richard Nixon presents to Daniel Patrick Moynihan the pen used to sign his first Executive Order, #11452, "Establishing the Council for Urban Affairs", was signed on January 23, 1969.
Pen presented by President Nixon to Daniel Patrick Moynihan. President Nixon's first Executive Order, #11452, "Establishing the Council for Urban Affairs", was signed on January 23, 1969, three days after his inauguration. At the signing, he gave Dr. Moynihan this pen. At a White House news briefing following the Council's first meeting, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, newly appointed Assistant to the President for Urban Affairs and Executive Secretary of the Council, announced the formation of nine subcommittees of the Council, each to be chaired by a Cabinet officer. Moynihan also announced the formation of an interim staff committee under the chairmanship of Budget Director Robert P. Mayo to work out plans for transition to a peacetime economy at the end of the Vietnam conflict. With the assistance of Urban Affairs Council Secretary Moynihan, Nixon created the Family Assistance Plan. FAP called for the replacement of bureaucratically administered programs such as Aid to Families with Dependent Children, Food Stamps and Medicaid, with direct cash payments to those in need. It received very little congressional support. The pen is matted with a 4¾x3½ card, gilt-embossed with the presidential seal, upon which is written in calligraphy the following: "Pen used by President Nixon/in signing the Executive Order/establishing the Council for/Urban Affairs, January 23, 1969."
