Dan Quayle

Beautiful signed photograph of Quayle, the third youngest Vice President in history

James Danforth Quayle, 1947–.  44th Vice President of the United States, 19891993.  Matte finish color portrait photograph, signed Dan Quayle as Vice President.

This official color photograph of Quayle, signed during his time in office, has never been offered on the autograph market before.  It comes with the original mailing envelope from the Office of the Vice President bearing Quayleʼs printed free frank and a note bearing his facsimile signature.

Quayle was the third youngest Vice President in American history.  He took office on January 20, 1989, at age 41, two weeks shy of his 42nd birthday.  Only John C. Breckinridge, at age 36, and Richard Nixon, at age 40, were younger.

Then-Vice President George H. W. Bush selected Quayle, a Senator from Indiana, to run with him in 1988 as he sought to succeed Ronald Reagan in the White House.  Bush and Quayle defeated Governor Michael Dukakis of Massachusetts and Senator Lloyd Bentsen of Texas by some 7 million votes in the popular vote and 426–111 in the electoral vote. 

Quayle was one of the most active Vice Presidents in history.  He made official visits to 47 countries, chaired the National Space Council, and headed the Counsel of Competitiveness, which worked to insure that the United States would be competitive in the 21st Century. 

Bush and Quayle were defeated for reelection in 1992.  Since leaving office, Quayle has written three books, including Standing Firm: A Vice-Presidential Memoir (1994), Quayleʼs account of his time as Vice President, which was on the New York Times bestseller list for 15 weeks; The American Family: Discovering the Values That Make Us Strong (1996); and Worth Fighting For (1999), the prelude to Quayleʼs unsuccessful bid for the 2000 Republican presidential nomination.  He currently lives in Arizona and serves as Chairman of Cerberus Global Investments, LLC, a private investment firm headquartered in New York City.

This is an extremely nice photo.  Quayle has signed in black felt-tip pen in the wide lower white margin.  The photo has a slight bend in the upper left corner that is imperceptible unless the photo is turned just right in the light, but otherwise it is pristine.  Overall the piece is in very fine condition.
