Spectrum Q&A with Jimmy Carter
A brief discussion with the former U.S. President
In January, I reached out to former U.S. President Jimmy Carter via USPS. I provided the retired politician with a Q&A for The Spectrum, which he filled out and returned sometime in February.
His handwritten signature below his answers has been carefully examined and deemed authentic by PSA/DNA, the world’s leading third-party authentication service for autographs and memorabilia.
