With one 5¢ full-color John Copley stamp affixed. FIRST DAY OF ISSUE. 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. CLARK CLIFFORD (1906-1998) was an American lawyer who advised four Democratic United States presidents. He became an aide for Harry S. Truman during World War II and became his special counsel in 1946, where he helped Truman to develop the Truman Doctrine and persuaded him to recognize the state of Israel. He later became secretary of defense under President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1968. His stay was brief - less than a year - but he did manage in that short time to convince Johnson that he needed to start working towards an end to the Vietnam War. Presidents John F. Kennedy and Jimmy Carter also sought his advice. Lightly toned, creased and rippled. Otherwise in fine condition.
