First edition of volume one of President Eisenhower’s memoirs. Octavo, original cloth, pictorial map endpapers. Inscribed on the half title page by the author, “For The Honorable John R. Dethmers with best wishes from Dwight D. Eisenhower.” The recipient, John R. Dethmers was a member of the Michigan Republican State Central Committee in 1939. Dethmers served as Chairman of the Michigan Republican Party from 1942–1945 and was a delegate to the 1944 Republican National Convention. He served as Michigan Attorney General from 1945-1946. Governor Harry Kelly appointed Dethmers Justice of the Michigan Supreme Court, serving from 1946–1970 and serving as Chief Justice of the Michigan State Supreme Court in 1953, 1956–1962, and 1967-1969. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. A nice association.

This is the story of President Eisenhower’s first administration. Dwight D. Eisenhower, one of the major figures of the twentieth century, writes an account of the events, as he saw them, leading up to a sweeping mandate, and then pursues the theme of change in the years 1953-1956
