HUBERT H. HUMPHREY
A remarkable letter from the Vice President to a friend, saying that his unsuccessful 1968 campaign for president was still "worthwhile - that we may have done the country's spirit some good even in defeat"
Typed letter signed: "Hubert H.", in black felt tip, 7x9. In full: "Dear Gerry: I am grateful for your warm letter. I think the campaign was worthwhile - that we may have done the country's spirit some good even in defeat. I know I don't need to tell you how much it means to Muriel and me to have friends like you and Ruth. Sincerely". Hubert H. Humphrey (1911-1978) was Mayor of Minneapolis (1945-1948), U.S. Senator from Minnesota (1949-1964, 1971-1978; Senate Democratic Whip, 1961-1964) and Lyndon B. Johnson's Vice President (1965-1969). Well-known for his long and witty speeches on the Senate floor, he was known as "The Happy Warrior". Humphrey, who ran unsuccessfully for President against Nixon in 1968, returned to the Senate in 1971. The post of Deputy President Pro Tempore of the Senate was created for him. Humphrey held it from January 5, 1977 until his death at his home in Waverly, Minnesota on January 13, 1978. His wife, Muriel, was appointed by the Governor of Minnesota to the U.S. Senate on January 25, 1978 to fill the vacancy caused by his death, becoming the only Vice President's wife to become a U.S. Senator. She served until a successor was elected in November. Fold in center. Light surface creases. Pencil notes (unknown hand) on verso. Fine condition.
