Typed Letter signed: "RN", 1 page, 7x10½. Washington, D.C., 1971 August 30. On White House stationery to Mr. Charles C. Tillinghast, Jr., Chairman, Trans World Airlines, New York. In full: "Dear Charlie: Your recent telegram in support of our new economic policy confirms my belief that citizens of this country are eager to meet the challenges of peace. We have launched what is meant to be a bold program, designed to revitalize the faith which made this nation strong in the past and which can win for every American a new era of prosperity. If we are to reach these goals, temporary sacrifices may be required. But I am convinced that, by working together, we can also move forward together. In this spirit, I hope you will convey to your friends and associates my earnest whish that they join with us in this great investment for our nation's future. 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). Toned around edges. Two horizontal mailing folds. Ink stamp on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
