Scarce 1974 presidential letter to his famous supporter—the multitalented Rudy Vallee

TLS as president signed “RN,” one page, 6.75 x 8.75, White House letterhead, January 16, 1974. Letter to entertainer Rudy Vallee and his wife. In full: “Your thoughtful birthday greetings helped to make January 9 an especially enjoyable day for me, and this note is just to thank you for your kindness and friendship.” In fine condition. Accompanied by the original White House mailing envelope. Vallee was one of Nixon’s most prominent Hollywood supporters during his presidential campaigns, and was quoted in 1968 as saying that Nixon was ‘the most qualified man in this country, intellectually and emotionally’ to run for president. In 1969, Esquire ran a cover story about Nixon’s fashion style, which depicted the recently inaugurated president along with Vallee, Art Linkletter, Billy Graham, and Lawrence Welk, all wearing the rather bland suit he was known for. Nixon had turned 61 on January 9th, which would be his last birthday in the White House—embroiled in controversy with the Watergate scandal, he would resign exactly eight months later, on August 9, 1974. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
