Senator Nixon will send a copy of the Congressional Directory for the 82nd Congress to political reporter Carl Greenberg.
Typed Letter Signed: "Dick" as U.S. Senator from California, 1p, 8x10¼. Washington, D.C., 1951 March 8. On United States Senate letterhead to Mr. Carl Greenberg, c-o Senator Hotel, Sacramento, California. Begins: "Dear Carl". In full: "I am sending you under separate cover a copy of the Congressional Directory for the 82nd Congress. I thought you might find this of some use in your work. With very best regards, Sincerely". With original typed mailing envelope bearing Nixon's imprinted frank. At the time of this letter, CARL GREENBERG (1908-1984) was a veteran political reporter for the "Los Angeles Times", from which he retired as Political Editor in 1973. Greenberg had previously worked for the "Los Angeles Examiner" for 29 years until the paper ceased publication in 1962. RICHARD MILHOUS 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. Lightly creased with folds, not at signature. Fine condition..
