About this Item

The nephew (and namesake) of General Douglas MacArthur and son-in-law of Vice President Alben Barkley, this U.S. diplomat fought with the French Resistance in World War Two, being held prisoner of war for two years; he served as U.S. Ambassador to Japan (1957-61), Belgium (1961-65), Austria (1967-69) and Iran (1969-72). TNS, 1p, 8" X 10¼", Tokyo, Japan, 1957 September 9. Addressed to Gerald L. Arnholt. Very good. A gracious reply to an autograph request from the newly-appointed ambassador, thanking his correspondent "for your much-too-generous words about me." Bold full signature in blue fountain pen. Choice vintage example from the first-time ambassador at his first post. Bookseller Inventory # 27415
