This leaf is from the personal autograph collection of Elsie Myrus. She was the wife of Myrus – “The Wizard of Telepathy” and “The Man with the X-Ray Eyes” – and collected autographs from celebrities who came to see her husband’s performances. Reagan (1911-2004, born in Tampico, Illinois) had two careers: actor and politician. His first movie was Love is on the Air (1937) and his 53rd and last film was The Killers (1964). In 1965, he wrote his autobiography, Where’s the Rest of Me?, a line from his role as Drake McHugh in King’s Row (1942). Reagan left his job hosting television’s Death Valley Days during the 1965-1966 season, when he entered politics. Elected Governor of California in 1966, he was reelected in 1970. Reagan began his campaign for the presidency and narrowly lost the 1976 Republican nomination to Gerald Ford. He was elected President in 1980 and was reelected in 1984. After leaving office in 1989, he wrote his second autobiography, An American Life. On Feb. 6, 2001, Reagan became just the third U.S. President to reach the age of 90. Lightly toned and creased. Pinholes at left edge from binding. Otherwise in fine condition. – Please contact us if you have any questions or require additional information. HFSID 165405
