The only thing more "Apple Pie-American" than 34th President Dwight D. Eisenhower, is artist Norman Rockwell. Both of these great American icons figure prominently in this professionally mounted display featuring a 1953 Eisenhower Typed Letter Signed. Handsomely framed and matted to overall dimensions of 30 x 23-1/2", this feel-good piece hosts a 6-1/2 x 8-1/2 Eisenhower letter on White House letterhead and an 11-1/2 x 13" Norman Rockwell portrait print. The familiar Rockwell portrait was originally used for the front cover of the 10/11/52 edition of the Saturday Evening Post magazine, which hit newsstands a little less than a month before "Ike" enjoyed a landslide win over Adlai Stevenson in the 1952 presidential election. Dated 7/14/53, Eisenhower's letter is addressed to "Dillon Anderson", a Houston attorney who served during Eisenhower's administration as National Security Advisor. Eisenhower mentions that his advisor Bobby Cutler handed him a magazine with two new stories by Anderson, and he goes on to state "I am eager to become acquainted with one more side of the many-faceted Dillon Anderson". The crowning touch of this interesting correspondence is Eisenhower's firm ("9") strength signature. Full photo LOA from JSA.
