Thank you letter from Washington's Lt. Governor John Cherberg after 1964 Reelection

Thank you letter from Lt. Gov. Cherberg to Jack Gordon


While Jack was still Commissioner of Washington State's Employment Security Department, he helped John "Johnny" Cherberg, the Lieutenant Governor, in an election. Cherberg wrote Jack a gracious thank you note.

Because he served as Lt. Governor during the terms of 5 (count 'em, five!) governors (Al Rosellini, Dan Evans, Dixy Lee Ray, John Spellman, and Booth Gardner) over a period of 32 years, Cherberg was affectionately known as "Governor." 20 Years after he wrote this letter, he was, of course, still friends with Jack, as this picture shows.
