Signed letter as Governor, thanking a citizen for recommending the reappointment of a park commissioner
Typed Letter signed: "Ron" as Governor, 1 page, 8½x11. Sacramento, California, 1971 September 22. On official letterhead to Gardiner Johnson, Attorney at Law, San Francisco, California. Reagan has crossed out the formal greeting to "Mr. Johnson" and penned "Gardiner". In full: "There is no better way to learn about the performance of a public official than from the people themselves. We firmly believe this, and that's why we welcome letters like yours. Thanks for taking the time to recommend Mrs. Guy Gilchrist for reappointment to the State Park and Recreation Commission. Whatever considerations may enter into the final decision, your suggestion will definitely be kept in mind. Sincerely". 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). He was President of the Screen Actors Guld. 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). He hosted TV's Death Valley Days. During the failed Presidential campaign of Senator Barry Goldwater (1964), Reagan, a former Democrat, emerged as an eloquent spokesman for Goldwater and for the conservative cause. 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. While Reagan was never without his critics, he had two undisputed achievements as President: moving the conservative message and program to the center of American politics; and helping to set in motion the collapse of the Soviet system which he had called "the evil empire." After leaving office in 1989, he wrote his second autobiography, An American Life. The longest living President until Gerald Ford surpassed him, Reagan spent his final years struggling valiantly against the ravages of Alzheimer's disease. Filing holes at top edge. Red pencil marks (unknown hand) at top left corner. Multiple mailing folds. Toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
