Incsribed on the half-Title: To Archie (Cox) with warmest regards and great Admiration Elliot."
While serving as Nixon's Attorney General, Richardson insisted on appointing Archibald Cox as Special Prosecutor for the Watergate break-in case. As Cox compiled damning evidence, Nixon insisted that Richardson or his deputy William Ruckelshaus fire Cox. Rather than do so both Richardson and his deputy resigned, leaving Solicitor General Robert Bork to fire Cox, resulting in what came to be known as The Saturday Night Massacre. Richardson devotes an 11 page section of this book to the event. A terrific Watergate association.
