Ronald Reagan sends a typed letter of appreciation for the effort put into a pictorial recollection of San Simeon.
Typed Letter Signed: "Ron" as Governor of California, 1p, 7¼x10½. Governor's Office, Sacramento, 1969 October 7. To Ken Murray, Beverly Hills. In full: "I only now had a chance to look through your pictorial recollections of San Simeon and think you did a marvellous (sic) job in narrating the Hearst Story. This, together with the great interest the public has in this family, promises the book's appeal and success. Regarding your generosity in wanting to share any returns with the State, I can only again tell you how grateful we are." In a 44-word handwritten postscript, Reagan adds: "P.S. Ken this dos'nt (sic) begin to say how really over whelmed every one up here is over what you have done. Our park director Mr. Mott may run you for Gov. What you've done is truly above & beyond the call of duty. Bless You." KEN MURRAY was a vaudevillian, actor, radio and television entertainer who had hosted a variety show on television in the early fifties. He wrote The Golden Days of San Simeon. San Simeon was the massive California estate of publisher William Randolph Hearst, furnished with antiques and artifacts from around the world. 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. Lightly creased. Fine condition.
