        Six months after he leaves the Office of Vice President, Richard Nixon tells financier Jack Dreyfus "I am enclosing my check for $40,000 to Dreyfus and Co. for the purpose of opening my first brokerage account … I know there are risks involved investing in stocks …"

      [Los Angeles, California], July 17, 1961. 7.25" x 10.5". "Typed Letter Signed ""Dick,"" 1 page, 7.25"" x 10.5"". [Los Angeles], July 17, 1961. On stationery engraved at top center ""Richard Nixon."" With original postmarked envelope, name and Los Angeles address on back flap marked ""PERSONAL"" on envelope. To Jack Dreyfus, Dreyfus and Company, Two Broadway, New York City. Fine condition.In part, ""I am enclosing my check for $40,000 to Dreyfus and Co. for the purpose of opening my first brokerage account. In accordance with our discussions, I would like you to apply whatever portion of this amount is required to purchase a four year call on 1000 shares of Poloroid stock … I have no knowledge whatever of the mechanics of the stock market since my capital position has been such in public life that I have not been able to make any investments in stocks … I know there are risks involved investing in stocks…"" Read the entire in the image above.Financier Jack Dreyfus (1913-2009) was the founder of the Dreyfus Fund. In 1964, Life magazine called him the “Maverick Wizard Behind the Wall Street Lion,” in reference to the emblem of his fund and its aggressive marketing. Dreyfus, it said, was “the most singular and effective personality to appear in Wall Street since the days of Joseph Kennedy and Bernard Baruch.” His paternal grandfather was a first cousin of Alfred Dreyfus, the protagonist of the late 19th-century anti-Semitic scandal known as the Dreyfus Affair. Dreyfus sold his mutual fund company in 1970 and established the Dreyfus Health Foundation to pursue other medical applications for Dilantin which had cured his depression in the 1960s. In 2000, Dreyfus said that an account in The Arrogance of Power: The Secret World of Richard Nixon by Anthony Summers (New York: Viking, 2000) that he gave Dilantin to Richard Nixon in 1968 was correct. Dreyfus said he gave Nixon a bottle of 1,000 capsules of 100 milligrams each ''when his mood wasn't too good,'' and later gave him another bottle of 1,000 capsules."

        François Berthoud Facsimile..

      4, 40 Bl., zahlr. farb. blattgrosse Abb., Kart., Tadell Text engl. Vorzugsausgabe mit signiertem und num. Tiegeldruck der Druckerei Hürlimann. Text von Holly Brubach.- Der Schweizer François Berthoud zählt zu den herausragendsten Modeillustratoren der Gegenwart. 1961 geboren und an der Kunstgewerbeschule in Lausanne ausgebildet, entwickelte er früh eine unverkennbare Handschrift in der grafischen Umsetzung und Illustration von Kleidern, Schuhen, Taschen, Parfums und Accessoires. Seine expressiven, hochästhetischen Linolschnitte, Tropfenbilder und Computergrafiken begleiten unzählige Modekampagnen - von Yves Saint Laurent, über Bulgari bis zu Sonia Rykiel. Dabei ergänzen sich das dargestellte Objekt und Berthouds visuelle Interpretation davon zu einem atmosphärischen Gesamtwerk, das die Wahrnehmung und den Markterfolg eines Produktes wesentlich mitprägt. In dieser ersten umfassenden Ausstellung sind hunderte Originale, Skizzen und Arbeitsproben zu entdecken, aber auch ein filmisches Porträt, das seine Werkprozesse aufzeigt. Dabei fasziniert insbesondere der Einsatz analoger und digitaler Techniken, die sich gegenseitig befruchten und zu meisterhaften Resultaten führen.

        Jacqueline Kennedy Signed White House Print.

      1961 - White House photographic print taken in 1961 by White House photographer Cecil Stoughton. Boldly signed by Jacqueline Kennedy at the lower left. Stoughton took multiple photos in front of the White House fountains on the South Lawn when developing the 1961 Christmas Print. The final Christmas print, which showed more ducks positioned closer to the photographer, is derived from a different photograph taken moments before or after this mock-up. Here, the ducks are positioned on the far side of the pool and the camera was positioned at a slightly different angle than that used for the final Christmas Print. Matted and framed with a full length printed portrait of Jacqueline Kennedy after a painting. The entire piece measures 20.5 inches by 31 inches. Rare and desirable. When John F. Kennedy was sworn in as president on January 20, 1961, 31-year-old Jacqueline Kennedy became the third youngest First Lady in American history. As a presidential couple, the Kennedys differed from the Eisenhowers by their relative youth and their relationship with the media. Historian Gil Troy has noted that in particular, they "emphasized vague appearances rather than specific accomplishments or passionate commitments" and therefore fit in well in the early 1960s' "cool, TV-oriented culture". The discussion on Kennedy's fashion choices continued during her years in the White House, and she became a trendsetter, hiring American designer Oleg Cassini to design her wardrobe. She was the first First Lady to hire a press secretary, Pamela Turnure, and carefully managed her contact with the media, usually shying away from making public statements, and strictly controlling the extent to which her children were photographed. Portrayed by the media as the ideal woman, academic Maurine Beasley has stated that Kennedy "created an unrealistic media expectation for first ladies that would challenge her successors." Nevertheless, by attracting worldwide positive public attention, the First Lady gained allies for the White House and international support for the Kennedy administration and its Cold War policies. Although Kennedy stated that her priority as a First Lady was to take care of the President and their children, she also dedicated her time to the promotion of American arts and preservation of its history. Her main contribution was the restoration of the White House, but she also furthered the cause by hosting social events that brought together elite figures from politics and the arts. One of her unrealized goals was to found a Department of the Arts, but she did contribute to the establishment of the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment of the Humanities, established during Johnson's tenure.

        Typed Letter Signed about Noel Coward

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. A brief typed letter signed from the great composer and lyricist to Albert "Doc" Sirmay, head of the music publisher Chappell and a close collaborator with Porter, thanking him for sending clippings and mentioning that he has sent a telegram to Noel Coward "for his opening" (of the 1961 musical Sail Away.) Dated September 30, 1961. 1 p. A few small stains, else fine. <br style=""><br>Composer, arranger and editor Albert "Doc" Sirmay was the music director of the leading music publishing firm Chappell. According to Mark Eden Horowitz, Sirmay can be considered a collaborator with Porter: he "worked closely with [Chappell's] roster of composer, including Kern, Gershwin, and especially Porter. Many of the published piano-vocal scores of standards of the mid-1920s to the mid-1960s owe their elegance, clarity, and playability to Sirmay. He could convert a lead sheet to a richly accompanied song; he could wed melodies to accompaniment figures to make the totality of a song playable on the piano; he was a master of chord voicings. Many of the Porter music manuscripts in both the Library and Yale collections are in Sirmay's clear and flowing hand." ("Cole Porter's Papers," in A Cole Porter Companion, p. 310.)<br style="">

Heinemann agreed to 'amend all unsold copies of the book' (The Times, October 25, 1962) but actually pulped them. An extremely scarce title to find with such attributes.

Stephens attended Florida A&M. She and her sister Patricia led the movement to integrate lunch counters in downtown Tallahassee. In September 1960, she was one of 11 students who, after attempting to eat at a lunch counter at Woolworth's, were suspended and spent 49 days in jail, rather than paying a fine.The Student Emergency Fund was founded in April 1960 by two prominent Black Americans, Jackie Robinson and Mrs. Marion B. Logan, wife of Dr. Arthur Logan. Both Jackie Robinson and his wife Rachel were patients of Dr. Logan.On December 10, 1960, The New York Times reported that the Student Emergency Fund was set up in New York City ""to help Negro and white students jailed in sit-in demonstrations in the South."" On December 22, 1960, the Times reported that the Student Emergency Fund ""is sending more than $2,000 to two white and four Negro families in New Orleans who defied segregationist picket lines to send their children to newly integrated schools. The group is headed by Jackie Robinson, former baseball star, and Mrs. Arthur Logan, wife of a Manhattan physician.""Mr. Robinson said yesterday the organization would mail a $1,000 check today to Mr. and Mrs. James Gabrielle in North Providence, R.I. The family left New Orleans after Mr. Gabrielle had quit his city job because of 'unbearable harassment' by fellow employees. Mr. Robinson said the Rev. Lloyd Foreman, Methodist minister who also defied the picket lines, would be sent a check for $719, and the families of four Negro girls attending the two schools would receive $100 each.""Also present is a 3"" x 5"" sheet of note paper listing deposits (two checks on 12/22) totaling $1000 noting ""To Gabrielles"" and ""Rev. Foreman $500."" - see December 22, 1960, article referred to above. With two 7.5"" x 3.25"" yellow $150 Chase Manhattan receipts for personal money orders, each signed in carbon by Marion B.

With a Chock full o' Nuts envelope, postmarked New York, November 2, 1961, addressed by typewriter to Mrs. Marion B. Logan at Doubleday Book Shops, New York. Jackie Robinson was a Vice President at Chock full o'Nuts.A new discovery! While normal Jackie Robinson checks are many on the market, less than ten checks exist from this account with this significant civil rights association. This might be the most important."

        Jacqueline Kennedy Signed White House Print.

      , 1961. 1961. White House photographic print taken in 1961 by White House photographer Cecil Stoughton. Boldly signed by Jacqueline Kennedy at the lower left. Stoughton took multiple photos in front of the White House fountains on the South Lawn when developing the 1961 Christmas Print. The final Christmas print, which showed more ducks positioned closer to the photographer, is derived from a different photograph taken moments before or after this mock-up. Here, the ducks are positioned on the far side of the pool and the camera was positioned at a slightly different angle than that used for the final Christmas Print. Matted and framed with a full length printed portrait of Jacqueline Kennedy after a painting. The entire piece measures 20.5 inches by 31 inches. Rare and desirable. When John F. Kennedy was sworn in as president on January 20, 1961, 31-year-old Jacqueline Kennedy became the third youngest First Lady in American history. As a presidential couple, the Kennedys differed from the Eisenhowers by their relative youth and their relationship with the media. Historian Gil Troy has noted that in particular, they "emphasized vague appearances rather than specific accomplishments or passionate commitments" and therefore fit in well in the early 1960s' "cool, TV-oriented culture". The discussion on Kennedy's fashion choices continued during her years in the White House, and she became a trendsetter, hiring American designer Oleg Cassini to design her wardrobe. She was the first First Lady to hire a press secretary, Pamela Turnure, and carefully managed her contact with the media, usually shying away from making public statements, and strictly controlling the extent to which her children were photographed. Portrayed by the media as the ideal woman, academic Maurine Beasley has stated that Kennedy "created an unrealistic media expectation for first ladies that would challenge her successors." Nevertheless, by attracting worldwide positive public attention, the First Lady gained allies for the White House and international support for the Kennedy administration and its Cold War policies. Although Kennedy stated that her priority as a First Lady was to take care of the President and their children, she also dedicated her time to the promotion of American arts and preservation of its history. Her main contribution was the restoration of the White House, but she also furthered the cause by hosting social events that brought together elite figures from politics and the arts. One of her unrealized goals was to found a Department of the Arts, but she did contribute to the establishment of the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment of the Humanities, established during Johnson's tenure.
