    Vice President George H. W. Bush Signs Part of his Speech from the Third International Conference on AIDS Document signed, 1 page, 8 1/2" x 10 7/8". The first page of Bush's speech from the Third International Conference on AIDS, signed "To __ Best Wishes. Good luck. George Bush." The speech, given on June 1, 1987, reads in part, "...Coming as you do from around the globe, united in purpose, what you accomplish here is of vital importance to every nation on earth. It is no exaggeration to say that the health and wellbeing of literally millions of men and women depend on you. The cause that unites us, of course, is our battle against AIDS, a new and mysterious disease. The number of victims is almost doubling every year. As of a year ago the United States had a total of 16,000 cases of AIDS reported since 1981. Today that toll is over 36,000. Over one-half of those victims have died of the disease. And the tragedy is that the rest may, too..." The piece is in fine condition, with a very dark inscription and signature. A copy of the remaining five pages of Bush's speech accompanies the piece. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
