1976 Ronald Reagan Autograph and Small Reagan Tray
The biggest reason the New Hampshire primary is important is that we ask every candidate to answer real questions and talk to real people. My first candidate was watching and listening to Dwight Eisenhower, while sitting on my Dad's shoulders in 1956 in front of the town building. New Hampshire takes this responsibility very seriously. In 1976 Ronald Reagan ran for President for the first time. He participated in the New Hampshire Primary, running primarily against Gerald Ford.Ronald Reagan spoke in my town (1200 pop) at the high school in the theatre. I remember being amazed at his memory that night. People asked him not one but 2 and 3 questions at a time. He spoke and answered questions for several hours. My Dad, who was a died in the wool Republican made his mind up that night who he was voting for! He stood in line and shook hands with Mr. Reagan and asked another question. Mr. Reagan's aid had these "business style cards" he was handing to potential supporter's. He handed one to Mr. Reagan who signed it and gave it to my Dad. We found this card recently in Daddy’s bedside table. Over the years he amassed quite a collection of Republican memorabilia some of which I have already listed, with much more to come. Ronald Reagan was always Dad’s favorite President, a real man, as he would say. I am including the little tray with the card. It sat on his nightstand. Every night his watch and Swiss Army Knife rested there.
DIMENSIONS: the business card is 2” x 3 ½” the tray is 6” x 4”
CONDITION: the card is slightly yellowed on the left side, this is very hard to distinguish, it is by no means glaring. The tray graphics are fine as is the underside. The bottom right hand corner looks like it was rubbed and is a not perfect. Please note pictures.
