1964. unbound. 2 pages, 11 x 8.5 inches, an excerpt from "Of Leaders and Leadership," circa 1964, in small part: "For our method of electing a President is crude in the extreme. Pre-convention juggling with local political bigwigs is obscure (often, one fears, on a low plane), and it, and the travel and speechmaking, cost millions, the sources of which are sometimes questionable. Our national conventions are at best ludicrous, and at worst scandalous. They are conducted by delegates, chosen ofttimes without much attention to the public will, and committed to vote in strange ways, or not committed at all. Out of all this appear a nominee and a platform, the later often drawn by others, to which the nominee is assumed to be committed, but to which no one pays much attention..." Paperclip stain in the upper left corner; still in very good condition. American engineer, inventor and pioneer in Analog computers who played a critical role in persuading the United States government to undertake a crash program to create an Atomic Bomb.
