Draft Autograph Letter Signed: "RR" as Governor of California, 1 page, 8x4½ yellow lined sheet. (Sacramento), 1967 December 20. To Barbara (Mrs. John B. Coolen), So. Green Falls, N.Y. In full: "It was good to hear from you after so many years and to learn of your good life. Tar Baby is long gone but believe it or not I'm riding her son who looks just like her. Have a Merry Xmas & Happy New Year." The recipient's name and address are also in his hand. In 1951, Reagan made his first Western, The Last Outpost. The producers permitted him to ride his own horse, Tar Baby, in the film. Reagan handwrote this letter and gave it to his secretary, Cathy Davis, to type. She typed it on December 20, 1967, writing the date "12-20-67", and drew a line through the text, indicating she had typed it. 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). 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). Reagan left his job hosting television's Death Valley Days during the 1965-1966 season, when he entered politics. 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. After leaving office in 1989, he wrote his second autobiography, An American Life. On February 6, 2001, Reagan became just the third U.S. President to reach the age of 90 and the nation's longest living President until Gerald Ford (d. 2006) lived 45 days longer. Fine condition.
