Richard Nixon and Gerald R. Ford sign a philatelic envelope for the White House Conference on Youth.
Philatelic Envelope signed: "Richard Nixon" and "Gerald R. Ford", 6½x3½. First Day Cover for the White House Conference on Youth, 6-cent stamp affixed, postmarked Washington, D. C., February 24, 1971 FIRST DAY OF ISSUE. RICAHRD NIXON (1913-1994) was elected 37th President of the United States in 1968after representing California in the U.S. House of Representatives (1947-1951) and U.S. Senate (1951-1953) and serving two terms as Dwight D. Eisenhower's Vice President (1953-1961). 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. Nixon's 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 August 1974. 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's prolific writing in his retirement years helped repair his reputation and hasten his re-emergence as an elder statesman. GERALD FORD (1913-2006), a long-time Congressman from Michigan (1949-1973) and the only man who served as both Vice President (1973-1974) and President without being elected to either office, was Nixon's vice-president and then became president when Nixon resigned, serving as 38th U.S. President from 1974-1977. He holds the record as the longest-lived former U.S. President. Fine condition.
