Critique of Nixon's TV image up for auction
From greasy hair to clenched fists, critique of Nixon's television image up for auction in NH
By The Associated Press

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) ' A 10-page critique of Richard Nixon's early television image ' from his greasy hair to his clenched fists ' is among a collection of papers now up for auction in New Hampshire.

Nixon commissioned the critique from a New York consultant in 1967, seven years after sweating through the first televised presidential debates with John F. Kennedy and as he prepared to run for president again. The report shows how serious Nixon was about improving his television image. He underlined more than 60 passages, mostly criticisms of his appearance and manner.

Nixon's longtime joke writer, Paul Keyes, saved the then-candidate's copy of the report and it's being sold by RR Auction in Amherst. It expects the report and other of Keyes' papers to fetch $3,000-$4,000 in an online auction that ends Aug. 10.
