Actor, diplomat, and businessman JOHN GAVIN (1931-2018) graduated with honors from Stanford University, majoring in Latin American economic history. His early interests were "Law, Latin America and diplomacy."Gavin was commissioned in the U.S. Navy during the Korean Conflict as an officer in naval air intelligence (1952-1955). After his discharge, he returned to California, was screen-tested at Universal, and made his screen debut in Behind the High Wall (1956). His first starring role came in 1959 opposite Lana Turner in Imitation of Life and he received a Golden Globe for the Most Promising Newcomer the same year. Slated for stardom, he appeared in Psycho, Spartacus, Midnight Lace and A Breath of Scandal, all in 1960. Transitioning to live theater in the 1970s, he both toured and appeared on Broadway in Seesaw and The Fantasticks. President Ronald Reagan appointed Gavin U.S. Ambassador to Mexico (1981-1986). After leaving government service, he became a successful businessman and civic leader, co-founding and managing ventures in the U.S. and Latin America. He served as vice president of federal and international relations for Atlantic Richfield as well as director. He also served on boards of several non-profits (pro bono) including Loyola Marymount University and the California Community Foundation. Additionally, Gavin was a member of the Congressional Policy Advisory Board as a defense and foreign policy expert. Dancer and stage, screen, and television actress MARY TYLER MOORE (b. 1936) starred in two of TV's most successful comedies, The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961-1966) and The Mary Tyler Moore Show (1970-1977), winning two Emmy Awards for the former and three Emmys for the latter. Moore, who was nominated for an Academy Award as Best Actress for Ordinary People (1980), also won Tony Awards in 1980 (Whose Life Is It Anyway?; a special Tony as she was a replacement performer) and 1985, for a revival of Joe Egg, backed by her production company, MTM. Moore is a diabetic and has been active in the fight against diabetes. Corners and edges gently worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
