STEWART UDALL The politician pens his name on this envelope in black ink Envelope signed: "Stewart L. Udall" as Secretary of the Interior, in black ink, 6½x3¾. Postmarked Webster, South Dakota, October 29, 1961. Envelope commemorating the politician's dedication of a salt water conversion plant. Unfortunately Udall's first name is misspelled. Stewart Lee Udall (1920-2010), a Democrat who represented Arizona in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1955-1961, served as Secretary of the Interior under Presidents Kennedy and Johnson (1961-1969). During his tenure, the U.S. established national wilderness areas and trails and wild-and-scenic river systems. The Congressional seat Stewart Udall gave up to enter JFK's Cabinet was occupied for the next 30 years by his younger brother, Morris Udall, a Presidential candidate in 1976. Udall, who had served in the Air Force during WWII, was an outdoorsman and conservationist, and had actively defended conservation interests while serving on the House Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs. He later wrote a book, The Quiet Crisis (1963) that gave a huge boost to the environmental movement. Udall also wrote syndicated columns on the environment. Lightly toned. Gently creased toward top edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
