Octavo, 200pp. Blue leather, title embossed on cover. In publisher’s dust jacket, lightly worn, in very good condition. Inscribed by the author and photographer on the title page: “For Craig and Karen, who were totally involved / in two of my five administrations! If Craig appears / on page 129, how come no picture of Karen?? How did I / miss you in the Reagan years? All my best to you both, always, / Diana / Diana Walker / December 2002.”
At the age of 34, Craig L. Fuller was asked to serve as the Chief of Staff for Vice President George H.W. Bush. He had previously served in the Reagan administration as the Assistant to the President for Cabinet Affairs. After serving as Chief of Staff for 4-years, it was assumed that Fuller would follow Bush to the White House in 1989. Shortly after the 1988 election, the President-elect told Fuller that New Hampshire Governor John H. Sununu would serve as his White House Chief of Staff. Fuller was disappointed and decided to return to the private sector, where he enjoyed a successful career in corporate and public affairs.
