Title: Typed Letter Signed.
This Ohio republican was named chairman of the powerful Federal Communications Commission by President in Eisenhower in 1954, but resigned in 1957 in the face of bribery charges involving the awarding of television channels in Miami and Pittsburgh. TLS, 1p, 6 3/4" X 9", Washington, DC, 1956 February 13. Addressed to Bruno J. Gianetti. Very good. Single 1" scotch tape stain (not affecting text) and mounting traces on verso. On Federal Communications Commission letterhead, a fun letter to the parents of a boy named George: "By George, I think you have a Capitol idea even though I make no claim to fame. If I can improve as much as your little George grows in stature, by the time he is old enough to understand your book, his name could be mor exemplary. At least you have furnished me with an additional incentive to not let George do it alone. I have a son named George, too, who is also working to add meaning to the name. Since I understand George, whether large or small, I know that your George will get my message because he is wired for sound too." Bold full signature in blue fountain pen. A gracious and thoughtful response; unfortunately, despite his lofty language, McConnaughey would be resigning under questionable circumstances about a year later. Bookseller Inventory # 32188
