In full: "Thanks so much for the book and even more so for the warm & kind inscription-I hope I can deserve it at least a little. I've had time only to glance at the book but that has whetted my appetite for more leisurely time I hope is coming when I can read it. Again thanks from both Nancy (who sends regards) and myself." Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) had two careers: actor and politician. His first movie was Love is on the Air (1937) and his 53rd and last film was The Killers (1964). He was President of the Screen Actors Guld. In 1965, he wrote his autobiography, Where's the Rest of Me?, a line from his role as Drake McHugh in King's Row (1942). He hosted TV's Death Valley Days. During the failed Presidential campaign of Senator Barry Goldwater (1964), Reagan, a former Democrat, emerged as an eloquent spokesman for Goldwater and for the conservative cause. Elected Governor of California in 1966, he was reelected in 1970. Reagan began his campaign for the presidency and narrowly lost the 1976 Republican nomination to Gerald Ford. He was elected President in 1980 and was reelected in 1984. While Reagan was never without his critics, he had two undisputed achievements as President: moving the conservative message and program to the center of American politics; and helping to set in motion the collapse of the Soviet system which he had called "the evil empire." After leaving office in 1989, he wrote his second autobiography, An American Life. His final years were a valiant struggle against the ravages of Alzheimer's disease. Fine condition. Not framed in the Gallery of History style.
