'75 Signed Letter~donald Alexander~us Treasury Commissioner~photos To Irs Only For Sale
This October 10, 1975 letter, typed on the official stationery of the Commissioner of the Department of the Treasury/Internal Revenue Service/Washington, D.C., has been signed by DONALD C. ALEXANDER. Donald Chrichton Alexander (1921-2009) was a tax lawyer and Nixon administration official. The World War II recipient of the Bronze Star and Silver Star, was appointed Commissioner of Internal Revenue by President Richard Nixon in May 1973, and was replaced in February 1977 during the Jimmy Carter administration. Alexander resisted attempts by Nixon to use the IRS to investigate Nixon's political enemies, resulting in a string of attempts by Nixon to fire him. Early on in his tenure as Commissioner, Alexander dismantled the IRS Special Service Staff, which had been used to pursue detractors of the administration and its policies in Vietnam. This letter, sent to the original collector who had requested a signed photo, reads "Thanks very much for your kind letter and I regret that I am unable to fulfill your request. Sorry, but I can't send autographed photographs to anyone outside the Internal Revenue Service. With best wishes, Sincerely, Donald C. Alexander." The vintage letter, with its original envelope franked by the Department of the Treasury showing a bit of wear, will make a fine addition to any collection.
