Naming Herbert Hoover, Jr., to negotiate an “air transport agreement” with West Germany
Description                           Estimate: $800 - 1,000          

DS as president, one page, 10.25 x 14, July 7, 1955. President Eisenhower authorizes Under-Secretary of State Herbert Hoover, Jr., to “negotiate, conclude, and sign an air transport agreement between the Government of the United States of America and the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany.” Signed at the conclusion in fountain pen by Eisenhower and countersigned by Secretary of State John Foster Dulles. The crisply embossed affixed white paper seal remains fully intact. In fine condition. Originates from the estate of a gentleman who drafted official documents and treaties for the government and couriered them to the president himself. In the course of his career he was able to retain several examples and duplicates of these documents. The American Military Air Transport Service (MATS) famously conducted the Berlin Airlift in 1948–1949 to provide supplies to the Federal Republic of Germany [West Germany], which was suffering from a Soviet blockade. An interesting link between Cold War allies. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
