Letter to his longtime friend Lydia 'Hup' MacArthur, in full: "Nancy & I have your letter, & photos and news story and we like them all. It was wonderful hearing from you and seeing pictures of you. You & I have such warm memories of our years together and of Pete and how much he meant to all of us. Nancy sends her love and so do I." In fine condition, with trivial soiling and a spot of spreading to a single word. Lydia Hupfer 'Hup' MacArthur was the widow of Pete MacArthur, program director of WOC in Davenport, Iowa. In 1932, MacArthur had given a then 21-year-old Reagan his first job as a sports announcer. They would remain friends until her passing at the age of 102 in 1995.
