Kurt Waldheim Autograph

Kurt Josef Waldheim (born 1918) was an Austrian diplomat and conservative politician. He was Secretary-General of the United Nations from 1972 to 1981, and President of Austria from 1986 to 1992.

He served as First Secretary of the Legation in Paris from 1948, and in the Ministry for Foreign Affairs in Vienna from 1951 to 1956. In 1956 he was made Ambassador to Canada, returning to the Ministry in 1960, after which he became the Permanent Representative of Austria to the United Nations in 1964. For two years beginning in 1968, he was the Federal Minister for Foreign Affairs in Austria serving for the Austrian People’s Party, before going back as Permanent Representative to the U.N. in 1970.

Waldheim had unsuccessfully sought election as President of Austria in 1971, but his second attempt on June 8, 1986, proved successful. 1986 also marked the beginning of what became known as the Waldheim Affair. Before the presidential elections, Alfred Worm, in the Austrian weekly news magazine Profil, revealed that there had been several omissions about Waldheim’s life between 1938 and 1945 in Waldheim’s recently-published autobiography.

During the controversy, Waldheim was defended by “nazi hunter” Simon Wiesenthal, who was severely criticized for this move.

Mstislav Rostropovich: Authentic Autograph

He left us today: Mstislav Rostropovich. Hand signed Autograph on cardboard.

8,5 x 5,5 inches. Very fine condition.

The Autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Mstislav Leopoldovich Rostropovich (Russian: Мстисла́в Леопо́льдович Ростропо́вич, Mstislav Leopol’dovič Rostropo’vič, March 27, 1927 – April 27, 2007), affectionately known as “Slava,” was a Russian cellist and conductor considered to be one of the greatest cellists ever.

Rostropovich was born in Baku, Azerbaijan, then part of the Soviet Union. From 1943 to 1948, he studied at the Moscow Conservatory, where he became professor of cello in 1956. He lived for the latter part of his life in self-imposed exile in Paris.

Rostropovich had been treated at a Moscow clinic in early 2007 for what was reported to be hepatic cirrhosis, or degeneration of the liver. At the time, rumors flew that he was dying, fed by his having been visited by Russian President Vladimir Putin. It later was discovered that Putin met Rostropovich to discuss details of a celebration the Kremlin was planning for March 27, 2007, Rostropovich’s 80th birthday. The celebration took place and Rostropovich was reportedly in frail health.

The Itar-Tass news agency reported that Rostropovich died on April 27, 2007 in Moscow, after having been hospitalized in February of the same year for intestinal cancer. He was 80.
