KILLION, the President of American President Lines, Ltd., served as Treasurer of the National Democratic Committee, and he was one of the co-founders of the World Trade Club.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. Staple holes and rust stain at upper left margin. Pencil notes (unknown hand) at upper left and lower right margins. Overall, fine condition..
