Lightly creased and rippled at blank margins. Minor surface creases (not evident head on). Overall, fine condition. Accompanied by TLS: "Cliff Sessions" as Special Assistant to the Attorney General, 1p, 8x7. Washington, D.C., 1969 January 20. On letterhead of the Department of Justice/Director of Public Information to Mr. Danny Franklin, Sunnyslope, Arizona. In full: "Attorney General Ramsey Clark has autographed the enclosed photograph and sends it to you with his best wishes. Sincerely". Handwritten postscript: "Sorry for the delay." Slightly creased. Fine condition. When Ramsey Clark (born in 1927) was appointed Attorney General by President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1967, his father, Tom C. Clark, resigned as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court to avoid any possible conflict of interest. Ramsey, who served as Attorney General until the end of Johnson's term in 1969, was an opponent of the Vietnam War and has always been a proponent of civil rights. He founded the International Action Center, a nationwide anti-war organization, and he has faced criticism for his defense of such clients as Saddam Hussein. Clark, who joined Hussein's defense team in 2004, returned to Iraq in November 2005 to protest the Iraqi Tribunal that was trying Hussein, and he was ejected from the proceedings in November 2006 after he told the judge that the trial was a travesty. Two items.
