Left hand traced and signed by Captain Anderson, in black ink
Hand print signed: "William R. Anderson", 7½x10. Captain William R. Anderson commanded the Nautilus (SSN-571), the first nuclear powered submarine in the U.S. Navy, during its historic voyage under the North Pole, submerged under the ice for 96 hours and 1,830 miles. As the vessel reached the pole, Anderson announced: "For the world, Our Country, and the Navy - the North Pole." After retiring from the Navy in 1962, Anderson represented Tennessee for in the U.S. House of Representative four terms (1965-1973) as a Democrat. The Nautilus, decommissioned in 1979, was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1982. The public may visit the historic sub at the Submarine Force Museum, Groton, Connecticut. Ink note (unknown hand) on verso. Fine condition.
