Richard Nixon and John McCormack sign a philatelic envelope from the first day of Nixon's second presidential term.
Philatelic Envelope signed: "Richard Nixon" and "John McCormack", 6½x3½. Inaugural cover commemorating the second inauguration of Richard Nixon as 37th President of the United States. 8-cent stamp picturing the White House, Washington Monument and the American flag affixed, postmarked Washington, D.C., January 20, 1973, INAUGURATION DAY. 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. John W. McCormack represented Massachusetts in the House of Representatives from 1928-1971, serving as Democratic Majority Leader (1939-1941, 1945-1947, 1949-1953, 1955-1961) and Minority Whip (1947-1949, 1953-1955) and Speaker of the House (1961-1971). From the assassination of President Kennedy (November 22, 1963) to the inauguration of Vice President Hubert Humphrey (January 20, 1965), Speaker John McCormack was next in line to the Presidency.
