SPIRO T. AGNEW
Spiro T. Agnew sends a typed letter.
Printed Typed Letter Signed: "Ted" in ink, 1p, 8½ x11. Crofton, Maryland, no date, c. 1975. Agnew has penned: "Dear Ernie" to his former assistant, W. Ernst Minor who served him while he was Vice President. Agnew had resigned the Vice Presidency on October 10, 1973, pleading no contest to charges of income tax evasion. In part: "For the past two years, I have waited for more well-known, national spokesmen (yes, I said spokesmen, not spokespersons) to take up the fight against the apologists for the revolutionaries who are intent on destroying the strengths of our great country. I am tired of waiting, and perhaps you are, too,...for the leaders of the CIA to be considered more patriotic than Daniel Ellsberg or the Rosenbergs;...for the right of privacy to apply to everyone, not just those who the news media feel are entitled to privacy; for intellectuals to get off general criticism and down to specific solutions; for an end to the debilitating and diverse preoccupation with race; and for the United States of America to stop being a patsy and re-earn the respect of the World. In the hope of stimulating Americans to support these common sense, but perhaps radical, ideas, I have been closely involved over the past year in activating a tax-exempt organization, Education for Democracy...This is not a 'mailing list' solicitation. Fewer than five hundred of these letters have been sent; and each is to someone I know personally, someone I believe shares my concern...." On pale blue stationery with "education for democracy" in red. Fine condition.
