    Dwight D. Eisenhower Archive of Letters Signed to his personal physician and longtime friend Howard McC. Snyder. Sixteen Typed Letters Signed written spanning the years 1946 to 1966 (but none as president), on various letterheads. Most letters are brief sending thanks and greetings for birthdays and anniversaries; most notably a TLS addressed to the Snyders and five other couples inviting them to help plan for the celebration of Ike and Mamie's 33rd wedding anniversary. Grouping also includes three telegraphs and a 1962 Christmas card with printed greeting and signature. Letters are signed "Ike", "D.E.", and "Ike E." and the majority are accompanied by the original transmittal envelope. All are in near fine to fine condition. Should be reviewed for content.
