Henry Cabot Lodge Jr. (1902 – 1985) Signed Ambassador Calling Card, "Henry Cabot Lodge", 4 x 2.5, by the Republican United States Senator from Massachusetts and a United States ambassador. He was the Republican nominee for Vice President in the 1960 presidential election alongside incumbent Vice President Richard Nixon. The Republican ticket lost to Democrats John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson. He was appointed by President Eisenhower as Chief of the U.S. Mission to the United Nations in 1953. Having both the rank of Ambassador and a position on Ike's Cabinet, Lodge became influential in the formulation of U.S. foreign policy. His exposure during frequent televised U.N. debates led to his selection as Richard Nixon's running mate for Vice President in 1960, but the ticket lost to Democrats JFK and LBJ. He is best known for his controversial role when sent to South Vietnam as Ambassador by President Kennedy, again by President Johnson, and was later dispatched by President Nixon as U.S. Representative at the Paris peace talks on Vietnam. In between Vietnam assignments, he was U.S. Ambassador to Germany. Comes with the original personalized mailing envelope. Both items in fine condition.
