        Incredibly desirable 2pp memorandum of Carl T. Rowan with awesome Viet Nam content. Endorsed with the handwriting of none other than Lyndon B. Johnson

      Autograph Endorsement, 8” x 10.5”, 2p, Washington, D. C. April 26, 1965 the memo from Carl T. Rowan, Director of the United States Information Agency regarding the public stance Johnson should take in his upcoming press conference about the United States/Viet Nam question. At the top of the page, LBJ has written "get to Bill M-" He is referring to Press Secretary, Bill Moyers. Also at the bottom of the first page, is an unknown hand is the pencil notation, "This kind of speculation is unproductive and harmful." There are secretarial filing notes in the upper left corner. Fine condition. In this memo, Rowan points out the press conference would be an excellent opportunity to “win world support (or mute criticism) for our policies and actions with regard to Viet Nam…. 1. Peking and Hanoi both seem to cling to an assumption that world opinion…will force you to pull back from your present policies. 2. Should negotiations occur in any forum, we will need all the support that we can muster from other countries. …Countries and leaders who sympathize with us privately….are somewhat critical of us publicly because of this overriding fear of war. Your John Hopkins speech …. Put the United States on the “peace” offensive without weakening our pledge to South Viet Nam….our desire to help build Southeast Asia rather than bomb it, …we would prefer to bring American Boys home from Viet Nam instead of sending more in – if only the aggressors would leave their neighbors alone.” At the press conference on April 27, 1965, Johnson said, in part “We are engaged in a crucial struggle in Viet-Nam. Some may consider it a small war, but to the men who give their lives it is the last war and the stakes are high. Independent South Viet-Nam has been attacked by North Viet-Nam. The object of that attack is total conquest. Defeat in South Viet-Nam would deliver a friendly nation to terror and repression. It would encourage and spur on those who seek to conquer all free nations that are within their reach....Through the first 7 months of 1964, both Vietnamese and Americans were the targets of constant attacks of terror. Bombs exploded in helpless villages, in downtown movie theaters, even at the sports fields where the children played. Soldiers and civilians, men and women, were murdered and crippled, yet we took no action against the source of this brutality--North Viet-Nam....I say again that I will talk to any government, anywhere, any time, without any conditions, and if any doubt our sincerity, let them test us. Each time we have met with silence, or slander, or the sound of guns. But just as we will not flag in battle, we will not weary in the search for peace.” Also included is an earlier interoffice memorandum dated September 28, 1964 from George Stevens to Richard Goodwin on National Citizens for Johnson – Humphrey stationary, measuring 8.5” x 11”. The memo is in regards to how to use the half-hour national television time in October. At the time of this memo, Lyndon Johnson was running as the incumbent President against Barry Goldwater. Goldwater was campaigning on a platform that he would use an atomic bomb on Hanoi, ending the war. Johnson’s approach was to look for a more “peaceful” means to the end of the war. The memo suggests showing clips of “Test Ban”, “Hot Line to Moscow” and “our military strength is the great instrument in keeping the peace”

        I Love You, I Hate You, Drop Dead!: Variations on a Theme

      Fleet Publishing Corporation New York: Fleet Publishing Corporation. (1965). First. First edition. A couple of stains on the boards, a good or better copy in supplied, near fine dustwrapper. Inscribed by the musician to Carol Southern, wife of Shaw's very close friend, Terry Southern: "To Carol - Since we've already got Terry-Baby on the back, here you are, right in front - With love - Artie Shaw 4/16/65." The first of five blurbs that appear on the rear panel of the jacket is from Terry Southern. Shaw was particularly drawn to literary circles and, according to his biographer Tom Nolan, he "savored most of all his acquaintanceship with authors," including Southern. The two had became close friends when Southern returned to the U.S. in 1959. They were both looking for homes in East Canaan, Connecticut and Southern actually talked Shaw into letting him buy the house that Shaw had already put a deposit on. When Shaw retired from music, which he did several times during his long career, it was primarily to write. .

The collection includes a Typed Letter Signed from Johnson, his seven-page Signed book contract, along with the 36-page annotated manuscript introduction to the book by his friend, the architectural historian, Henry-Russell Hitchcock, and a Typed Letter Signed by Hitchcock.Philip Johnson (1906-2005) was one of the greatest and most important American architectural minds of the 20th Century and played an enormous role in both understanding and creating the modern urban skyline. He started his career as critic and curator championing the work of other major modern architects, twice serving as Directors of Architecture and Design at the Museum of Modern Art in New York (1930-1936 and 1946-1954). Later he took a more active role designing groundbreaking houses and public buildings including his famous Glass House resident in New Canaan, Connecticut, as well as the Seagrams Building and AT &T Buildings in New York. He was awarded the first Pritzker Prize in 1979.The brief Typed Letter Signed from Johnson is to Arthur Cohen, editor-in-chief at Holt, Rinehart, and Winston, concerning book negotiations, and is accompanied by a typescript of Cohen's reply. The Typed Letter Signed from Hitchcock is also to Cohen. Hitchcock discusses his plan to detail the portions of Johnson's career that he witnessed first hand, specifically his and Johnson's mounting of their landmark 1932 exhibition entitled "The International Style," which introduced a generation of American architects to the new European approach toward design characterized by the use of glass and steel, emphasizing function and structure over ornamental decoration. All are near fine or better with the final page of the manuscript torn along the right margin.A small but remarkable archive from one of the country's greatest architects.
