Autograph letter signed (ALS). One page, 7 x 10.5, personal “Ronald Reagan” letterhead, no date but circa 1958. It was wonderful to hear from you and I certainly appreciate your kindness and the honor you offered me. Unfortunately it will be impossible to attend your luncheon. I will be in Chi. This visit of mine is part of a tour arranged by General Electric in connection with the TV show. We start in Idaho and make appearances as we move East to Chi. And then on to other dates in the mid-west. Hal Reed of’G. Is in charge of arrangements there. Again please accept my thanks and my very deep regret about the May 1 date. In fine condition, mailing folds, toning to verso but front is bright and clean. Walgreen is certainly Myrtle Norton Walgreen, the widow of Charles Rudolph Walgreen, Sr. The founder of Walgreens. Reagan, who at this time was an actor and very active with the Screen Actors Guild. Was an American anthology series hosted by Ronald Reagan that was broadcast on CBS radio and television. The series was sponsored by General Electric’s Department of Public Relations. On September 26, 1954, Ronald Reagan debuted as the only host of the program. Made the already well-known Reagan, who had appeared in many films as a “second lead” throughout his career, wealthy, due to his part ownership of the show. After eight years as host, Reagan estimated he had visited 135 GE research and manufacturing facilities, and met over a quarter-million people. During that time, he would also speak at other forums such as Rotary clubs and Moose lodges, presenting views on economic progress that in form and content were often similar to what he said in introductions, segues, and closing comments on the show as a spokesman for GE. Reagan, who would later be known as “The Great Communicator” because of his oratorical prowess, often credited these engagements as helping him develop his public-speaking abilities.
