WILLIAM ROGERS Nixon's secretary of state pens his name in blue ink on this lined index card Signature: "W. Rogers" in black ink, 5x3. William P. Rogers (1913-2001), a U.S. Navy veteran of the Pacific Theater in World War II, was Deputy Attorney General (1953-1957) and then Attorney General (1957-1961) in the Eisenhower administration. Interestingly, he was the last surviving member of Eisenhower's Cabinet. Rogers had been a friend and confidante of Richard Nixon since the late 1940s, advising him on the Alger Hiss case and the "Checkers" speech. When Nixon became President, he tapped Rogers for Secretary of State (1969-1973). Rogers, a highly skilled lawyer, lacked foreign policy experience and wielded little influence on the foreign policy team of national security advisor Henry Kissinger and the President himself. President Reagan named him to head the investigation into the explosion of the space shuttle Challenger (1986). Light paper clip crease above signature. Soiled. Pencil note (unknown hand) on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
