About This Item

Chicago: United Air Lines Flight Kitchen, 1952. Flight Menu. Paper. Near fine. Inscribed by General Dwight D. Eisenhower, the "Eisenhower Special" flight menu from July 14, 1952, en route from the Republican National Convention in Chicago to Denver. The menu was prepared by Eugene Ertle of Chicago.. Folded menu, color illustrations, measures 6" x 4.5". Includes napkin from the flight. Housed in custom blue cloth folder, title in gilt over red morocco on cover. Signed on the menu card: "For Ellie, with best wishes, Dwight Eisenhower." After a contentious 1952 Republican National Convention in Chicago, where General Dwight D. Eisenhower prevailed over Senator Robert Taft of Ohio and Gov. Earl Warren of California to win the Republican presidential nomination, Eisenhower traveled to Fraser, Colorado for a short vacation. He traveled aboard a commercial aircraft operated by United Airlines, assigned to the Eisenhower campaign. Eisenhower and his wife, Mamie, planned to spend the week in Colorado, fly fishing, golfing, and visiting with Mamie's mother, Mrs. Elivera M. Doud. The "Eisenhower Special" was a cross-country campaign involving automobile parades, whistle-stop train tours, and air-travel.
