GERALD R.FORD (1913-2006)
GERALD R.FORD (1913-2006) 
38th President of the United States

38th President of the United States as well as the 40th Vice President. As the first person appointed to the Vice Presidency under the terms of the 25th Amendement, Ford became president upon Richard Nixon's resignation due to the Watergate scandal. Ford became the only President of the United States who was never elected President and never elected Vice President by the country's Electoral College. Before becoming Vice President, Ford served in the House of Representatives for nearly 25 years forthe state of Michigan. One of Ford's more controversial acts as President was granting a presidential pardon to former President Richard Nixon for his role in the Watergate scandal. In 1976, Ford would narrowly defeat Ronald Reagan for the Republican nomination but eventually lose the presidential election to Democrat, Jimmy Carter.

This museum quality frame, measuring 22.5" x 18.5", displays a portrait and handwritten letter. On the left, a portrait of Gerald R. Ford. On the right a note, boldly written by Ford. In the letter Ford writes, "Thank you all for a wonderful visit to Graylin. We appreciate your fine help." Presumably, the letter, while written on the official stationary of Wake Forest University, was intended for Wake Forest as well. The Graylyn International Conference Center, owned and operated by Wake Forest University, hosted a visit from Ford's in the late 1990s. The document is signed, "Gerald R. Ford." $575.00
