Reagan had served as Governor of California since 1967 and had been reelected in 1970. He was not a candidate for reelection in 1974. Republican Bill Scherle (1923-2003) had represented Iowa in the House of Representatives since 1967. He was reelected in 1968, 1970 and 1972. 1974 was a tough election year for Republicans. President Nixon had resigned on August 9th and President Ford had pardoned Nixon on September 8th, just 20 days before this breakfast. Scherle, who lost his bid for reelection, was appointed by President Ford as Deputy Administrator, United States Department of Agriculture (1975-1977). Reagan challenged Ford for the 1976 presidential nomination. 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. Slightly soiled. Shaded edges. Overall, fine condition.
