Archibald Cox, Jr., 1912-2004.  Solicitor General of the United States, 1961-1965; Watergate Special Prosecutor, 1973.  Mint condition Autograph Letter Signed, one page, on personal stationery, Brooksville, Maine, May 14, 2002.

Two days after his 90th birthday, Cox acknowledges a history teacher's letter.  In part:  “It is a pleasure to do a favor for a teacher of American History.  American history has been a life-long interest for me."

Cox, a Harvard law professor, played a significant role in American history himself: During his five-month tenure as Watergate special prosecutor, he set the stage for the downfall of President Richard Nixon.

Cox, a 1937 graduate of Harvard Law School, taught courses in torts and constitutional, administrative, and labor law and became an advisor and speech writer for then-Senator John F. Kennedy, who later as President made him Solicitor General. 

This letter is absolutely pristine.  Cox has boldly penned and signed it in black felt-tipped pen.
