RONALD REAGAN. Typed Statement signed: "Ronald Reagan" as Governor of California, 1p, 8½x11. Sacramento, no date. On Reagan's personal gubernatorial stationery. In full: "In trying to decide on my favorite word, I selected and then discarded several. Only one word seems always to have had that special meaning and importance to me. That word is 'home'. As far back as I can remember, 'home' has brought an immediate mental image and almost tangible feeling of comfort, happiness and well-being. 'Home' is synonymous with love and acceptance and being totally at ease. As a boy, 'home' meant: someone waiting, a place to immodestly enjoy success and openly suffer failure and a place to regain a perspective on important and seemingly important achievements and discoveries. Now as an adult, 'home' still has all those same meanings and, in addition, is a place where I know as I approach the door, someone is waiting for the sound of my footsteps. I count that fact among my greatest blessings." 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. Edges lightly toned from prior mounting. Overall, fine condition.
