Description

LBJ accepts the resignation of the Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare

TLS as president, one page, 7.25 x 10, White House letterhead, July 27, 1965. Johnson accepts the resignation of Anthony Celebrezze, the Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare, in part, "You go with my reluctance. No Cabinet officer has worked longer, harder, with a more zestful spirit, than you…The legacy you bequeath, not merely to your successor, but to the succeeding generations of Americans is the mark of your achievement. Medical care for the aged; education for more young people too often disadvantaged; bold new pathways in combatting disease…in all these adventures you were both leader and tireless worker." In fine condition, with some slightly irregular faint toning.
