Holiday Greetings from Rep. Gerald R. Ford

I'm not sure we'll see many greetings of this sort coming out of Washington, D.C. this year. But, lest we forget, the 1950s weren't so great for everyone. We still had two different sets of drinking fountains in some parts of the country, and there were millions more who were relegated to lives completely outside of mainstream society because of their race, religion, national origin or sexual orientation. Still, you have to admire the man's optimism. (Courtesy of the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library)
