Brief Condolence Letter to Altovise Gore Davis after the death of Her Husband, Sammy Davis. Jr. on May 10, 1990

Dated May 18, 1990. One Page. Personal-sized White House stationery. Now framed with black matting. A rather low quality cut-out photo of Sammy Davis and his wife mounted on the lower portion of the matting. Davis alienated many fans when he publicly supported the election of Richard Nixon (instead George McGovern) in 1972. Long before his death in 1990, Davis had regretted that endorsement and returned to supporting Democrats. President Bush apparently didn't think that Sammy's widow. whose first name is misspelled at the bottom of his letter, deserved more than this rather brief condolence letter. Near Fine. Item #87986
