RONALD REAGAN and NANCY REAGAN
Full-length publicity photo of President Ronald Reagan and First Lady Nancy Reagan with a wheelchair-bound Jim Brady who was paralyzed during the 1981 assassination attempt against the president. Both Ronald and Nancy have inscribed this photo to Brady!
Historic Photograph signed with Autograph Note Signed: "Dear Jim-/We were so happy to have you with us on our special day- love Nancy &" to which the President added "Ron". Color, 8x10. President and Mrs. Reagan are pictured with Presidential Press Secretary James S. Brady. On August 23, 1984, President Reagan accepted his re-nomination for President at the Republican National Convention in Dallas. Posters in the background refer to "[Four] More Years" and to Jim Brady ("We miss [yo]u!") who attended the convention and is pictured shaking hands with the President. In January 1981, President Reagan appointed James S. Brady as Assistant to the President and White House Press Secretary. Brady had previously served on the staff of Republican Senator William V. Roth of Delaware from 1977-1979, leaving to become Press Secretary to John Connally. The former Texas Governor and Nixon Secretary of the Treasury had announced his candidacy for the 1980 Republican presidential nomination. On March 30, 1981, John Hinckley shot President Reagan, Jim Brady and two law enforcement officers. Although seriously wounded by the gunshot wound to the head, Jim Brady remained the White House Press Secretary until the end of the Reagan Administration. Larry Speakes took over Brady's duties but continued in his post as Deputy Press Secretary. In Brady's honor, the reporters' briefing room in the White House was renamed the James S. Brady Briefing Room. After he was shot, Brady and his wife Sarah, Chairperson of Handgun Control, Inc. (HCI), were active in lobbying for stronger gun laws. On November 30, 1993, President Clinton signed the "Brady Bill", a bill named in Jim Brady's honor, into law. The Brady law requires a national waiting period and background check on all handgun purchases through licensed dealers. Fine condition. Framed to an overall size of 13x15¼. Not framed by the Gallery of History.
