TYPED LETTER TO FUTURE CONGRESSMAN SEYMOUR HALPERN SIGNED BY AMERICAN ASTROPHYSICIST AND SECRETARY OF THE SMITHSONIAN INSTITUTION CHARLES GREELEY ABBOT., Abbot, Charles Greeley. (1872-1973). American astrophysicist. Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution from 1928 to 1944.
172 Abbot, Charles Greeley. (1872-1973). American astrophysicist. Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution from 1928 to 1944. TYPED LETTER TO FUTURE CONGRESSMAN SEYMOUR HALPERN SIGNED BY AMERICAN ASTROPHYSICIST AND SECRETARY OF THE SMITHSONIAN INSTITUTION CHARLES GREELEY ABBOT.
Washington, DC: January 14, 1931. 1931. Good Signed
- 88 words typed on a sheet of 10-1/2 inch high by 8 inch wide cream-colored Smithsonian Institution letterhead with an engraved vignette of the Institution and a list of its departments at the top. Signed "C G Abbot". There is light creasing to the letter. The bottom left corner is creased with a glue stain. Folded twice for mailing. Good.

Abbot writes to the young Seymour Halpern who has evidently asked which are the most interesting exhibits at the Institution: "The exhibit in the National Museum which attracts the most attention is Colonel Lindbergh 'Spirit of St. Louis' but there are hundreds of others which are also of very great interest. For instance...the animals collected for the Institution by Colonel Roosevelt in Africa after his Presidency; the Ward Collection of African weapons and sculptures; the exhibit of the dresses of the wives of the Presidents...."

Charles Greeley Abbot [1872-1973] was an American astrophysicist and the fifth secretary of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC. As an astrophysicist he researched the solar constant--research that led him to invent the solar cooker, solar boiler, solar still and other patented solar energy inventions.

The Queens, New York Republican Congressman Seymour Halpern (1913-1997) started his political career as a campaign aide to New York's powerful mayor Fiorella La Guardia and first served in New York's State Senate for 14 years before seeking a seat in the U.S. Congress. In Albany Halpern sponsored 279 bills that became law, including measures on schools, housing, civil rights, nutrition and mental health. A Liberal, he was something of an anomaly as the lone Republican representative from New York City, and generally garnered support from Labor Unions and endorsement from the Liberal Party. Yet he never even considered switching parties as he considered membership in the Republican Party a family tradition and commitment. While he found ample time for his private pursuits, including painting and collecting autographs, he took his legislative duties very seriously. Of these, he was proudest of his co-sponsorship of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and of the original 1965 Medicare legislation.

178 Agnew, Spiro T. (1918-1996] Governor of Maryland & Vice President of the United States under Nixon. 16 ORIGINAL OFFICIAL WHITE HOUSE PHOTOGRAPHS OF VICE PRESIDENT SPIRO AGNEW'S VISIT TO JAPAN & ASIA IN MAY 1972 TO ATTEND CEREMONIES RETURNING OKINAWA TO THE JURISDICTION OF JAPAN.
Washington: Official Photograph / The White House, May 1972. 1972. Near fine Signed
- A collection of 16 original official White House photographs of Vice President Spiro Agnew's 4-day State visit to Japan, to mark the transfer of the Ryukyu Islands from the U.S. to Japan and ceremonies celebrating the return of Okinawa to the jurisdiction of Japan. The U.S. had controlled and administered the Ryukyu and Daito islands following the signing of peace treaties after the Second World War. Agnew followed his visit with a brief trip to war torn Vietnam. The first seven photographs depict Vice President Agnew's visit to Japan. Of these, the first four measure 8-5/8 inches high by 13-1/8 inches wide and are dated May 12, 1972. Two of these depict Spiro Agnew seated between Japanese Premier Eisaku Sato and ambassador Robert Ingersoll. Agnew's chief-of-staff Arthur Sohmer is seated at the right. A third photo depicts Agnew standing next to Ingersoll and Sohmer with an unidentified staff member at the right. The fourth photograph depicts Agnew, Ingersoll and Sohmer in the company of Japan's Minister of Foreign Affairs Takeo Fukuda, who would later become Prime Minister. A 9-1/2 inch high by 13-1/8 inch wide photograph dated May 13, 1971 depicts Vice President Agnew shaking the hand of a Japanese official after disembarking from a plane on one of the islands. Coming down the aircraft's stairs are Agnew's staff and a Japanese official. American and Japanese officials, as well as military officers and secret service agents (with their traditional ear buds) are present on the runway. A 9-3/4 inch high by 13 inch wide photograph depicts Japanese Premier Eisaku Sato shaking the Vice President's hand at a gala event. Agnew's back is to the camera. Pictured at right is Premier Sato's wife wearing a formal Japanese kimono. Arthur Sohmer stands behind her as Japanese and American officials line up behind the Premier. A secret service agent is easily identified by the presence of his ear bud. Two more photographs taken on that same day, these measuring 8-1/2 inches high by 13 inches wide, depict the Vice President standing at a podium framed by trees and bushes in front of an official residence and then seated speaking with the Premier in the company of ambassador Ingersoll and his staff. A final photograph of Agnew's visit to Japan dated the 13th, shows him shaking the hand of a Japanese official at the airport. Agnew is accompanied by elderly military officers, his chief-of-staff and a few others.

Four photographs dated May 16th, 1972 and measuring 10-1/4 inches high by 13-1/8 inches wide appear to have been taken in Southeast Asia. The first shows the Vice President attired in a polo shirt and striped slacks in the company of an important-looking elderly Asian politician attired in a "Hawaiian" shirt and black slacks. A second image depicts this same politician in the company of another Asian man, Arthur Sohmer and 2 other Americans. Two other photographs show Vice President Agnew seated at a table meeting with his staff. In front of each is a notepad and several plates of snacks occupy the middle of the table. In one of the photographs an unseen waiter is carrying several glasses of beer on a tray. A 10 inch high by 13-1/8 inch wide photo dated May 17, 1972 shows Vice President Agnew striding along the runway of Tan Son Nhut Air Base in the Republic of Vietnam. Agnew is followed by his staff and military personnel can be seen scattered throughout the photo. A 9-1/2 inch high by 13-1/8 inch wide photo of the same date depicts the Vice President seated at the head of a "U-shaped" table next to a Vietnamese military official. Sohmer and Agnew's staff are seated along the "U" on Agnew's side wih Vietnamese officials or staff seated across from them on the officer's side. A last photo of the same date, this one measuring 10-1/8 inches high by 13-1/4 inches wide, depict the Vice President with his staff and Vietnamese officials striding forth up the marbled stairs of an unseen building. In the background, soldiers are unloading material from two American military helicopters which have landed in the grassy field beyond the road.

The photographs are stamped "Official Photograph / The White House / Washington" followed by the date and a number on the verso.

All of the photographs are in very good to fine condition with but minor flaws only.

Spiro T. Agnew [1918-1996] was Governor of Maryland and Vice President of the United States under Nixon. He was indicted for tax fraud and forced to resign.

Following an agreement reached the previous year, the U.S. returned control of the Ryukyu islands, which include Okinawa, to Japan in May of 1972. The islands had been governed by the U.S. following the peace treaty signed by Japan at the conclusion of the Second World War. During Vice President Agnew's state visit, Premier Eisaku Sato and Foreign Affairs Takeo Fukuda assured the Vice President of Japan's support of the United State's position in Vietnam. During his visit Agnew not only discussed the subjects of Vietnam and Okinawa but also President Nixon's trip to China which had taken place in February of that year. Agnew subsequently met with Emperor Hirohito and had lunch with him at the Imperial Palace.

The Japanese politician Takeo Fukuda (1905-1995) was Japan's Minister of Foreign Affairs from 1971 to 1973. He first ran as a candidate for prime minister in 1972 but lost to Kakuei Tanaka. As leader of the Liberal Democratic Party, he ran again and was elected Prime Minister in 1976.

Elected Premier of Japan in 1964, Eisaku Sato introduced the "Three Non-Nuclear Principles" in 1967 and Japan became a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Sato had first approached President Lyndon Johnson to request that the United States return Okinawa to Japan and subsequently struck a deal with President Nixon. Eisaku Sato is the only Japanese to have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
