RICHARD NIXON This signed letter was sent to Secretary of State Henry Kissinger to announce the President's resignation Typed Letter Signed: “Richard Nixon” in felt tip. 8½x11. One page. Letterhead from the White House. Dated August 9, 1974. Sent to Henry Kissinger. Message in full: “I hereby resign the Office of President of the United States”. Includes two plaques and a color image of the President. Richard M. Nixon (1913-1994) was the 37th President of the United States. His political ascent was gradual, unlike his decline from power due to the infamous Watergate scandal that ultimately led to his resignation from the highest political office in the country. He served as a United States Congressman in the House of Representatives (1947-1950) and the Senate (1950-1953), eventually earning a spot as Vice President on Dwight D. Eisenhower's 1952 ticket for President. After eight years as Vice President in the Eisenhower administration, Nixon chose to run for Governor of California. He lost the election to Pat Brown, a humiliating defeat for the man just a year ago one step away from the Oval Office. After the Republicans endured the disastrous 1964 elections, Nixon returned to politics and ran for President in 1968. His tenure as President was marred by the Watergate Scandal. His reelection organization was implicated in a break-in to the Democratic National Committee headquarters, and a series audio tapes proved his attempted cover-up of the incident using federal resources. Nixon resigned on August 9, 1974, giving way to Gerald Ford as President. Fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 34½x25.
