Program for the San Fernando Valley Business and Professional Association Constitution Day dinner, held on Sept. 16, 1966, held at the Castaway in Bubank, California and honoring Congressman Ed Reinecke and congressional nominee Robert C. Line. Nixon was a special guest speaker at this dinner. This dinner was held during a low ebb in Nixon's career. His days in the United States House of Representatives and Senate were long behind him, and he had lost a presidential campaign to John F. Kennedy in 1960. Nixon (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 soiled and stained. Staples are missing. Rust stains on spine from staples. Otherwise in fine condition.
