EISENHOWER, DWIGHT D. (1890-1969). American soldier and thirty-fourth president of the United States. TLS. (“DE”). 1p. Small 4to. Washington, D.C., March 7, 1956. On pale green White House Stationery. To Republican Senator EDWARD MARTIN (1879-1967).

 

I deeply appreciate your kind letter about my announcement and your reaction to my TV statement. As a fellow old soldier you know what a tremendous relief it is to have such a decision as this finally resolved. I feel, respecting the future, quite enthusiastic. The opportunities before us to give increased service of enduring value to our country seem to me to be not only challenging but of a deeply satisfying kind. With you, I look forward to continuing our good progress in advancing our people’s interest and furthering the cause of world peace…”

 

Despite a 1955 heart attack and speculation that he would not seek a second term, on February 29, 1956, Eisenhower delivered a speech on television and radio kicking off his reelection campaign. In it, he cited one of the Constitutional responsibilities of the president to exert American “influence in the solution of world problems and in the direction of a just and enduring peace,” a cause mentioned in our letter, (http://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/ws/index.php?pid=10743). Eisenhower was easily nominated at the August, 1956 Republican National Convention, with the subsequent contest becoming a rematch of the 1952 election against former Illinois governor, Adlai Stevenson.

 

Eisenhower pioneered the use of television to broadcast his message and achieve policy goals. He was the first president to broadcast his fireside chats and news conferences and the first to employ a media consultant. “He established the first White House TV studio and provided the first ‘photo-op’ [and] used his press conferences to confuse the Soviet, Chinese and other foreign governments,” (review of Eisenhower and the Mass Media: Peace, Prosperity, and Prime-Time TVin Foreign Affairs, Ambrose).

 

A veteran of the Spanish-American War as well as both world wars, Martin was a Republican politician from Pennsylvania and served as that state’s governor from 1943-1947. Following his 1947 election to the Senate, he served as chairman of the Committee on Public Works.

 

Folded and in near mint condition.
