Letter to former Wyoming Governor Stanley Hathaway, referring to U.S. policy toward Gorbachev
Typed Letter signed: "Dick", 1 page, 7¼x10½. Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey, 1989 December 21. On personal letterhead to Stanley K. Hathaway. In full: "Your letter of November 13th brought back many pleasant memories of our friendship over the years. I particularly appreciated your very generous comments with regard to my foreign policy. I thought you might be interested in the enclosed item from Time magazine [Item not included.] which I wrote recently on U.S. policy toward Gorbachev and the Soviet Union. Would you please give my very best to Bobby. I am sure that she will come through her ordeal just as Pat has. Pat joins me in sending our best wishes to both of you for Christmas, the New Year, and the last decade of the twentieth century. Sincerely". Richard M. Nixon (1913-1994), was elected 37th President (1969-1974) of the U.S. in 1968 after 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. Nixon lost (1960), then won (1968), 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. A pragmatic conservative who gained an early reputation as an anti-Communist, Nixon would achieve diplomatic triumphs in relations with China and the Soviet Union. On January 23, 1973, he made the historic announcement that a cease-fire on January 27 would end American involvement in the long and devastating Vietnam War. At home, Nixon initiated plans to improve the environment and added four conservative justices, including Chief Justice Warren E. Burger, to the U.S. Supreme Court. The first President to employ the 25th Amendment, he chose Gerald R. Ford to replace the resigning Spiro T. Agnew as his Vice President. On August 9, 1974, eight months after Ford was sworn in (December 6, 1973), Nixon resigned his office due to the Watergate scandal. He was pardoned by his successor on September 8. Nixon's prolific writings in his retirement years helped repair his reputation and hastened his re-emergence as an elder statesman. Stanley K. Hathaway (1924-2005) was Governor of Wyoming (1967-1975) before serving briefly as President Ford's Secretary of the Interior (1975). "Bobby" was his wife, Roberta Hathaway. Filing holes at top edge. Fine condition.
