RONALD REAGAN'S "RIGHT SIDE"
RONALD REAGAN. Typed Quotation signed: "Ronald Reagan", 1p, 8½x11. In full: "Just remember my right side- my far right side." Captioned beneath signature: "Remark to the White House News Photographers Association, May 18, 1983". At the Annual Awards Dinner of the White House News Photographers Association, held on May 18, 1983 at the Sheraton Washington Hotel, President Reagan concluded his remarks with: "I admire what you do. And I believe you do your job honestly and fairly. And that's the basis of our press freedoms. And so, I thank you for inviting us here this evening. I thank you for your fairness and your hospitality. And, if we'll all just remember, my best side is my right side -- [laughter] -- my far right side. [Laughter] Thank you. God bless you all." The term "far right" denotes those who are extremely conservative, President Reagan's political base. 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. Otherwise, fine condition.
