WILLIAM E. “BILL” BROCK IIIThe United States Senator from Tennessee signed this letter and sent it to Mr. W. Ernst Minor with some friendly banter Typed Letter Signed: “Bill” in blue ink on an 8x10½ sheet of paper. One page. Dated October 12, 1971. In Part: “(2) My fellow Tennesseean was no problem on the Kup / Show. Don't be concerned about it. / (3) Go to Hell!”. The letter was sent to Mr. W. Ernst Minor, an employee of the Republican National Committee. The interjection that ends the letter can be taken as in jest, although it's rare to see joking remarks such as these on official United States Senate letterhead. Bill Brock (b. 1930) represented Tennessee in the United States House of Representatives (1963-1971) and Senate (1971-1977). In his winning Senate race, he beat country singer Tex Ritter in the Republican primary and then upset 3-term Senator Albert Gore, Sr. in the general election. He lost his bid for re-election, but went on to hold other political posts: United States Trade Representative (1981-1985) and Secretary of Labor under President Ronald Reagan (1985-1987). Brock resigned from the Cabinet to manage Senator Bob Dole's 1988 Presidential campaign. Brock was accused of financial mismanagement and Dole's campaign was unsuccessful. Mailing creases. Otherwise, fine condition.
