Nelson Rockefeller Letter Signed as Governor of New York

Nelson Rockefeller was an American businessman and politician who belonged to the famous, wealthy Rockefeller family. Rockefeller served as both the Governor of New York from 1959-1973 and the Vice President of the United States under President Gerald Ford. Rockefeller also served various positions on administration boards for Presidents Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, and Dwight Eisenhower. Rockefeller was a politically moderate, and as a Republican in his era that was incredibly rare. In fact, he was so unique compared to his extremely conservative Republican colleagues that other moderate Republicans inherited the name “Rockefeller Republicans.” During his time as Governor of New York, Rockefeller greatly expanded the State University of New York system and was one of the first politicians to address environmental protection. Rockefeller was personally selected by President Gerald Ford to be the Vice President following the Watergate scandal. Despite Gerald Ford appearing on the Republican ballot again in 1976, Rockefeller did not join him as he decided to make his retirement. Rockefeller’s greatest achievement in the field of business was forming the International Basic Economy Corporation in 1947. This piece is a typed letter from the State of New York Executive Chamber signed by Nelson Rockefeller as acting Governor of New York. The letter nominates one Louis Pelowski for the Workmen’s Compensation Board because of a death of one of the members. The piece is dated January 11, 1962.
