Typed Letter Signed: "Ron" as Governor of California, 1p, 7¼x10½. Sacramento, 1971 March 29. To Norman E. Thomson, USCE, APO San Francisco. In full: "I enjoyed hearing from you again, although I regret very much your current problems. Just how much assistance we can render I honestly don't know. Anyway, I'll pass on your letter and all the information to our Washington representative so that he can check into your situation and perhaps get a more satisfactory reply. We'll keep our fingers crossed. Warm regards." In a holograph postscript, Reagan adds: "P.S. He is a former service man himself so will have an understanding of your problem." APO San Francisco is the Army Post Office for Asia. 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. File holes and rust stain at upper blank margin. Lightly creased.
