Daniel Evans Typed Quotation Signed - 1968

Typed Quotation Signed by then-Washington State governor Daniel Evans, from his address as keynote speaker for the 1968 Republican National Convention, on State of Washington Office of the Governor stationery, dated August 5, 1968. In part:

“It is time now to reach inward ­­– to reach down and touch the troubled spirit of America.”

DANIEL J. EVANS (born 1925) served three terms as governor of the state of Washington from 1965 to 1977, and represented the state in the United States Senate from 1983 to 1989.


Evans was seriously considered for the Republican vice presidential nomination on the ticket with Gerald Ford in 1976 (but lost out to Bob Dole); Richard Nixon in 1968 had also hinted at a possible Evans nomination for the vice presidency. At the 1968 Republican National Convention (where he gave the keynote address) Evans refused to endorse Nixon for the presidential nomination, remaining a supporter of the doomed candidacy of Nelson Rockefeller.

After leaving the Senate in 1989, Evans founded his own consulting firm, Daniel J. Evans Associates. Governor Mike Lowry appointed him to the Board of Regents of the University of Washington in 1993; Evans served as the board’s president from 1996 to 1997, and in 1999 the Daniel J. Evans School of Public Affairs at the University was named for him. Evans also went on to work in media doing an editorial weekly on the KIRO-TV newscasts from the early to mid 1990s. Evans has just been announced as a “Guest Columnist” who will write in the Seattle Post Intelligencer’s new online line only paper.
