About Collecting Dwight D. Eisenhower Autographs

Dwight D. Eisenhower’s correspondence prior to the Second World War was fairly small but from that point on it was extensive. With the exception of letters he wrote home to his wife during World War II, almost all of the letters he wrote thereafter were typed.

Ike was a student of history and politics, and much interested in the qualities of leadership. He was capable of writing long, thoughtful and opinionated letters on these subjects, full of frank discourse. Though as president he had staff that drafted communications for him, quite a number of his letters are in his unmistakable style and show that, despite his reputation for being inarticulate, he was one of the best presidential letter writers of the 20th century. He signed letters to strangers “Dwight D. Eisenhower,” and to friends and acquaintances either “D.E.,” “Ike” or “Ike Eisenhower.”
