WALT WHITMAN ROSTOW
American economist and political theorist sends a note to a fan signing "with best wishes"
Autograph Note Signed: "To Stefan Pettersson/with best wishes/WW Rostow/Austin, Texas/15 May, 1985", 3¼x3¼ memo sheet imprinted with his name. American economist and political theorist Walt Whitman Rostow (1916-2003) was Special Assistant for National Security Affairs under President Lyndon B. Johnson from 1966-1969. The main figure in developing U.S. Vietnam war policy, Rostow was a staunch opponent of Communism and proponent of capitalism and free enterprise. A WWII veteran, he served as Assistant Chief of the German-Austrian Economic Division in the U.S. Department of State immediately after the war. Rostow was also Assistant to the Executive Secretary of the Economic Commission for Europe (1947), in which position he was involved in the development of the Marshall Plan. A teacher and author, Rostow became a speech writer for President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1958, and he was appointed by JFK as a Deputy Special Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs in 1961. Kennedy's successor, Lyndon B. Johnson, also relied on Rostow's expertise - naming him as U.S. Member of the Inter-American Committee on the Alliance for Progress (CIAP) before appointing Rostow to the National Security Affairs post. After retiring from government service, Rostow taught at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin (his wife, Elspeth, would later become dean of the school). Ink slightly smudged at year of date and one word of writing. Fine condition.
