We have the pleasure to present to you a special and unique bond. An American Third Liberty Gold Bond (1928), signed by former President Ronald Reagan, in 1983, when he was in office. The bond itself is accompanied by an envelope that tells a bit of the story of the previous owner. It was sent by Mr. Amon Giles Carter Jr. Bob Ellison in 1981 (as can be seen in the red seals on the envelope). The background of those two gentlemen can help us put together the full picture of the journey of the item. Carter was a publisher of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, and a prominent business and civic leader in Fort Worth. He was also a director of American Airlines, which his father, Amon G. Had helped to found. He graduated from Culver Military Academy and was attending the University of Texas when he was called to active duty in World War II. He served as a lieutenant in the artillery in North Africa but was captured by the Germans and spent 27 months as a prisoner of war. After the war, he became a director and treasurer of Carter Publications, which owned The Star-Telegram and WBAP radio and television stations in Fort Worth. He became publisher when his father died. Bob Ellison was a radio reporter who was the first African-American journalist to serve as president of the White House Correspondents Association. Ellison spent 14 years as the White House correspondent for the Sheridan Broadcasting Network (later known as the American Urban Radio Networks). He covered the Reagan, George H. Bush, and Clinton administrations, providing reports on major issues. In 1991, while serving his one-year term as president of the White House Correspondents Association, Mr. Ellison directed the planning of the groups annual spring gathering, which traditionally draws stars from the media and entertainment worlds. Carter had a connection with Mr. Ellison in the year 1981, as confirmed by the envelope attached to this bond, which Bob Ellison received personally, as stated by the stamp on it. Signed by President Reagan on August 13, 1983. On that day, the president undertook three main events. Issuing an official message to the House of Representatives, about returning without the approval of a bill providing funds for desegregation of the Chicago school system.
