ROBERT C. BYRD
He signs a typed letter thanking Ben Brown, the US Consul General in Turkey, for kindness during Byrd's recent visit there, and congratulates him on being appointed Ambassador to Liberia.
TLS: "Robert C. Byrd" as U.S. Senator, 1p, 8x10½. U.S. Senate, 1964 December 3. To Ben H. Brown, Jr., Consul General to Turkey, U.S. Consulate, Istanbul. In part: "Mrs. Byrd and I have just returned from our trip abroad, and I certainly do wish to thank you for your many kindnesses to us during our stay in Istanbul...Upon my departure, I was informed that you had just received word of your appointment as Ambassador to Liberia. Congratulations!...." BEN H. BROWN, JR. was appointed U.S. Ambassador to Liberia by President Johnson on November 25, 1964. He left his post on July 17, 1969. Robert C. Byrd (1917-2010) represented West Virginia in the U.S. Senate from 1959 until his death in 2010 - he was the longest serving member of the United States Congress in history. He has served as Majority Leader (1977-1980, 1987-1988), Minority Leader (1981-1986) and President Pro Tempore of the Senate (third in line for the Presidency, 1989-1995). Between 1989 and 2009, whenever the Democratic Party held a majority, Byrd chaired the power Appropriations Committee. He had clout on other important committees too: Armed Services, Rules and Budget. A master of parliamentary procedures, Byrd knew just how to exploit arcane Senate rules to achieve his goals and stymie opponents. A conservative when first elected, Byrd moved gradually to the left during his Senate tenure. The Americans for Democratic Action, whose scores on Senate voting records are a good measure of liberalism, had rated Byrd at 16% in 1964 (when he filibustered civil rights legislation), rising to 95% in 2005. Byrd was the last surviving Senator to have voted to admit a new State to the Union. Fourteen of his colleagues had not even been born when Robert Byrd entered the Senate. Fine condition.
