Richard Nixon signs a typescript of Lincoln's Gettysburg address in blue ink on November 17, 1958.
Typescript signed: "Richard Nixon/November 17, 1958", 1p, 6½x9. Beneath a printed copy of Lincoln's Gettysburg address. Photograph of Lincoln, b/w, 1x1½, printed beneath text. Richard Milhous Nixon (1913-1994) was elected 37th President of the United States 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 (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. Vertical fold touching "R" of Richard. Overall, fine condition.
