Description
An official hand typed letter, in excellent condition, from the Soviet Embassy in Washington, D.C., addressed to Mr. Oliver Powers, father of Francis Gary Powers.

The 9 x 6.5" letter is typed on 25% US cotton fiber paper and has the Soviet Embassy's letterhead atop the note. It is dated "June 2, 1960" and hand-signed by "N. Reznichenko," the acting Chief of the Consular Division at the time.

The letter states that the Embassy approves Mr. Oliver Powers' request, made in May, to visit his son, and that they are ready to issue a visa should he send in the proper paperwork and a photograph. The original envelope, containing four rare stamp markings and special delivery request, is also included in this lot. The envelope is worn but in good condition.

Francis Gary Powers was a distinguished pilot for the CIA's U-2 program during the height of the Cold War. Powers was arrested after his spy plane was shot down while flying a high-risk reconnaissance mission over Soviet airspace. To learn more about Powers' astounding story of survival, please visit www.guernseys.com

These items provided directly by Mr. Powers' son, expert public speaker on the U-2 Incident and Cold War History, Francis Gary Powers Jr.
