Henry Kissinger Autograph

Almost anything I might bother to write about Mr. Kissinger would be insufficient. I don’t have any personal stories or remembrances about him, so all that’s left is his public career and influence, which is rather epic in scope. So he shows up here in a week of Nixon people because just during the period he served as National Security Advisor in the Nixon administration, he advanced the policy of détente with the Soviet Union, pushed for the opening of relations with the People’s Republic of China, and negotiated the Paris Peace Accords, ending American involvement in the Vietnam War. His influence is controversial but you cannot dispute his impact.
