Inscribed photograph signed "To Ed/ with Thanks/ Bill/ Clinton" and "To/ Ed/ Thanks for/ taking this/ Picture to/ the President/ Gene Autry". B/w, 9¾x4½. Gene Autry is not the second man in this image.BILL CLINTON, born William Jefferson Blythe III in Hope, Arkansas in 1946, was Governor of Arkansas (1979-1981, 1983-1992) and the first Democrat reelected President since Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The only elected U.S. President to be impeached (Andrew Johnson was impeached, but he had not been elected to the office), on Feb. 12, 1999, President Clinton was acquitted on both articles of impeachment brought against him: charges of perjury and obstruction of justice. Clinton's popularity stood at 67% at the end of his trial, however. Obviously, many Americans were willing to overlook his personal failings in an era of peace and prosperity. His accomplishments in office included a waiting period for gun purchases (the Brady Law), the Family and Medical Leave Act, the North American Free Trade Agreement, welfare reform and balancing of the federal budget. Clinton had previously co-written (with Al Gore) Putting People First (1992), and he would publish his successful autobiography, My Life, in 2004. Clinton's wife, former First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, was a Democratic U.S. Senator from New York (2001-9), and is currently Secretary of State under President Barack Obama. GENE AUTRY (1907-1998, born Orvon Grover Autry in Tioga, Texas), the original singing cowboy, appeared in his first western in 1934. He was the only western star to be listed among the top ten moneymakers from 1938 to 1942. In 1942, Autry was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Song for Be Honest With Me from his film Ridin' on a Rainbow. The Gene Autry Show was televised on CBS from 1950 to 1956, and The Adventures of Champion, which starred Autry's horse, also ran on CBS from 1955 to 1956. Scheduled opposite the popular series Rin Tin Tin, it was cancelled in mid-season. Autry's business interests included a radio and TV chain, ranches, oil wells, a flying school, a music publishing company (he wrote 200 songs including Here Comes Santa Claus) and the California Angels baseball team. Lightly bowed. Stain and Tackhead-sized area of paper loss in bottom left corner. Irregular edges. Otherwise in fine condition.
