DAN QUAYLE, SPIRO AGNEW, WALTER MONDALE and HENRY KISSINGER
Three Vice Presidents and a Secretary of State sign a Constitution bicentennial cover honoring James Madison.
First Day Cover signed: "Henry A. Kissinger", "Dan Quayle", "Spiro T. Agnew" and "Walter Mondale", 7½x3¾. Commemorative envelope with printed cachet captioned: "Madison creates the Virginia Plan", postmarked Port Royal, Virginia, April 8, 1987. Twenty-two-cent US flag stamp and 4-cent Madison stamp affixed. Formerly Governor of Maryland, SPIRO AGNEW was Vice President under Richard Nixon (1969-1973). His resignation following a "no contest" plea to income tax evasion paved the way for Gerald R. Ford to become the first person raised to the Vice Presidency under the 25th Amendment, and then to the Presidency upon Nixon's resignation in 1974. WALTER MONDALE, formerly a Senator from Minnesota, was Vice President under Jimmy Carter (1977-1981) and the Democratic Party's presidential nominee in 1984. DAN QUAYLE, formerly a Senator from Indiana, was Vice President under President George H.W. Bush (1989-1993). HENRY KISSINGER, though never Vice President, probably wielded more power than any of the other three signers, first as President Nixon's National Security Advisor (from 1969) and then Secretary of State (1973-1977), winning the Nobel Peace Prize for the ephemeral Vietnam peace agreement of 1973. James Madison's Virginia Plan, formally proposed to the Constitutional Convention by Edmund Randolph, would have created what today would be called a parliamentary type of representative government. A legislature with seats apportioned among the states by population would have chosen the chief executive. Fine condition.
