HUBERT H. HUMPHREY
A typescript from his book The War on Poverty, signed in black ink
Typescript Signed: "Hubert H. Humphrey," 1½p, 8x10, separate sheets. LBJ's Vice President signs at the conclusion of an excerpt from his book, The War on Poverty. In part: "As rich as we are, we cannot afford the waste of slums, the drag on the economy that stems from unemployment and rising welfare costs, the crime, disease, and vice that are the by-product of poverty. Government alone cannot solve the problem...." 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. Paperclip impression at top left of first page. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
