RICHARD BYRD
Wishing to not participate in a speech, he writes his associate telling him to let down the presenter "in a very diplomatic way".
Typed letter signed: "Dick", in black ink, 1 page, 8x11. December 15, 1930. New York City, New York. In full: "Dear Bim: Please in a very diplomatic way discourage Mrs. Astor with the lecture, because I don't think it would work out, - I don't think that they would make anything. I am afraid it would end up by being embarrassing. It would either be a tremendous thing or nothing. Cheerio". On May 9, 1926, Richard Evelyn Byrd (1888-1957) and Floyd Bennett became the first to fly over the North Pole. Both were awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. Scholars have raised questions about whether or not Byrd actually reached the North Pole but all have agreed Byrd thought he had reached the North Pole. In 1929, Byrd established the "Little America" Antarctica base and flew (indisputably) over the South Pole. He was promoted to Rear Admiral upon his return in 1930. On his Antarctic expeditions in the 1930s, Byrd discovered Marie Byrd Land and the Edsel Ford Mountains. Still exploring in his late 60s, he commanded the Operation High Jump (1946-1947) and Operation Deep Freeze (1955-1956) operations. Hole on top left margin. Normal mailing fold. Fine condition.
