Color photograph of President George H.W. Bush and First Lady Barbara Bush greeting Illinois Representative Dan Rostenknowski. The photograph is signed by George H.W. Bush, with inscription that reads: “To Danny – With a lot of happy memories and friendship too – George Bush.” An excellent historical association copy.
Comments: One of the most influential politicians from Illinois in the 20th Century, Representative Dan Rostenkowski served on the House Ways and Means committee during the Reagan years. His political career ended abruptly in 1994 when he was indicted on corruption charges relating to the Congressional Post Office Scandal.
