Description: The 38th U.S. President, Gerald R. Ford (1913-2006), signed this typed letter in which he discusses with a constituent how a small company can do business with the government. His correspondent, Mr. Erwin T. Hedrich, had a question about a press notice and Ford wrote about how he contacted various agencies on Hedrich’s behalf trying to find him an answer. Ford writes: "…Once a supplier of a certain type of goods is listed, he will then receive the future invitations of the General Services Administration for bids…should you be able to locate the press notice in question and identify the agency involved… I will try to run this down for you." This letter was written when Ford was serving as House Minority Leader (1965-1973) and shows the lengths to which Ford was willing to go for his constituents.

Ford served as Vice President under Richard Nixon from December 6, 1973 to August 9, 1974. When President Nixon resigned from office, Ford succeeded to the presidency.
