RICHARD M. NIXON
Letter from the President to TWA Chairman Charles Tillinghast saying "It was a source of special satisfaction to learn that you will be serving on Secretary Volpe's Committee for the development of the first United States International Transportation Exposition."
Typed Letter signed: "RN", 1 page, 7x10½. Washington, D.C., 1971 June 23. On White House stationery to Mr. Charles C. Tillinghast, Jr., Chairman, Trans World Airlines, New York. In full: "Dear Charlie: It was a source of special satisfaction to learn that you will be serving on Secretary Volpe's Committee for the development of the first United States International Transportation Exposition. I believe this Exposition offers us an unusual opportunity to display out Nation's transportation products, equipment, and technology, and I know you share my feeling that this unique effort will produce major returns, not only for the transportation industry, but also for every segment of our economy. Your willingness to join in this important undertaking means a great deal to me, and I am certain that by working together, we can make this Exposition the finest of its kind in the world. With my best wishes, Sincerely," RICHARD M. NIXON (1913-1994), the 37th President of the United States, had served previously in the US Navy, the US House and Senate, and the Vice Presidency (1953-1961). Narrowly defeated for the highest office by John F. Kennedy in 1960, Nixon defeated Hubert Humphrey and George Wallace to attain it in 1969. His term was marked by extreme highs and lows, the high points including his dramatic state visits to the Soviet Union and China in 1972 and his landslide re-election later that year. The low point came in August 1974 when, facing a certain vote of impeachment in the House of Representatives, he resigned the office. Although he had a highly regarded National Security Advisor in Henry Kissinger, Nixon was very much in charge of foreign policy during his tenure, as he demonstrated by send copies of his foreign policy address to business leaders like Tillinghast. CHARLES C. TILLINGHAST, JR (1911-1998) became President and CEO of Trans World Airlines following the ouster of Howard Hughes, and led the airline as it surpassed Pan Am as the nation's leading air carrier and expanded into the hospitality industry. After leaving TWA, he was Chancellor of his alma mater, Brown University (1967-1978). Lightly toned. Top edge and center left edge with unknown stains. Two horizontal mailing folds. Otherwise, fine condition.
