Richard Nixon signs an invitation to attend the 1957 Inaugural Ball.
Inaugural Invitation signed: "Richard Nixon", 1p, 7x10. Partly engraved invitation to Mr. and Mrs. Samuel M. Burgess III to attend the 1957 Inaugural Ball on Monday evening, January 21, 1957, "In honor of/The President of the United States and Mrs. Eisenhower/and/The Vice President of the United States and Mrs. Nixon". Richard Milhous Nixon (1913-1994) was elected 37th President of the United States in 1968 after 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. Fine condition.
