Annenberg writes to Phyllis Diller regarding her upcoming birthday!
Typed Letter signed: "Walter", 1p, 6x9. St. David's Pennsylvania, 1997 June 16. On personal letterhead to actress and comedienne Phyllis Diller. In full: "I understand you will be 80 years of age on July 17, 1997 and, in anticipation of this distinguished anniversary in your life, the respect that you enjoy continues to mount because you are an outstanding and unique woman - nobody can deny this. It so happens that my wife and I will be in London July 17th, but I will toast you in a fitting manner. Ever warmly". Walter Annenberg (1908-2002), media mogul, philanthropist and one-time U.S. Ambassador to Great Britain (1968-1974), headed Triangle Publications, the publisher of "TV Guide", "Seventeen" and "The Daily Racing Form". He sold the firm to Rupert Murdoch for over $3 billion in 1988. Annenberg was one of the most generous philanthropists of all time. He endowed the Annenberg School(s) of Communication at Penn and Southern Cal and bequeathed $150 million to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. In 1991 he donated his art collection, valued at over $1 billion, to New York's Metropolitan Museum. Annenberg was awarded the Medal of Freedom by his close personal friend, Ronald Reagan. Fine condition.
