A Personal Note

This is the Photograph I took of Gerald Ford in the early 70's when he was speaker of the house. He told me that it was his favorite photo of himself and ordered 100 copies to use for publicity purposes.

By the time I delivered the 100 copies he was President of the United States.

He was very concerned that I receive his payment as soon as possible. His check arrived one day later.

I am honored and very lucky to have had this small "brush" with history. He was probably the nicest, most down to earth and honest politician Washington has ever seen.
