WINTON BLOUNT
The last US Postmaster General sends advice on citizenship education to the leader of a Chicago community organization
Typed Letter signed: "Winton M. Blount" as Postmaster General, 2 pages (front and verso), 8x10½. Washington, D.C., 1969 February 17. On official letterhead to Richard Hall, Program Supervisor, Chicago Commons Association. In part: "I have long been keenly interested in the attitude of young people toward our society and government, so I appreciate the opportunity accorded by your thoughtful letter to tell you some of my views on this vital subject. All young Americans are presented with two cups: one holds the priceless heritage of freedom and the tradition of self-government; the other holds the challenge to accept the responsibility of freedom and the duty to govern well. ..." Winton M. Blount (1921-2001) was US Postmaster General under President Nixon (1969-1972), the last Postmaster General with a seat in the President's Cabinet. He oversaw the transition to the semi-autonomous US Postal Service. Blount was the unsuccessful Republican candidate for US Senate from Alabama in 1972. A young George W. Bush transferred from the Texas Air National Guard to be political director of his campaign. The company Blount had founded as Blount Brothers Construction in 1946, and to which he returned in 1973, was sold to Lehmann Brothers for $1.35 billion in 1999. Lightly toned at left edge. Corners lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
