Reagan, Ronald. Photograph, Signature, Inscribed
Ronald Reagan’s Signature on Photo
Inscribed to (perhaps)
a Hollywood Leading Lady
Ronald Reagan signature, inscribed black and white photograph.
An 8 x 10 black and white photograph of Ronald Reagan, circa 1970s; probably during what was his tenure as Governor of California. Reagan inscribes the photograph To Nora Williams/With Best Wishes/Ronald Reagan.
Perhaps this is inscribed to the actress, Nora Williams. A film star from the 1930s, she and Reagan would have been Hollywood contemporaries. Reagan began his film career in 1937; it lasted until the 1964 film, The Killers. Reagan was also elected president of the Screen Actors Guild in 1947 to 1952, then again in 1959. His Hollywood career certainly could have garnered an association with Nora Williams.
