EISENHOWER, DWIGHT D., & DOUGLAS MACARTHUR.
Photograph Signed ("Dwight D Eisenhower" and "Douglas MacArthur"), 7 1/2 x 10 inch silver print, of Eisenhower and MacArthur traveling together in a car in Tokyo, May 1946, by Tom Shafer (inkstamp to verso), chipped at upper right and on the left margin. Framed.

A rare historic photograph of Eisenhower and MacArthur together in Tokyo, the reverse with the stamp of Tom Shafer, Foreign Correspondent Acme News Pictures Inc., San Fransisco. The two great egos of these most important of American Generals had many a conflict, and this is a rare image of the two of them together. If a picture can say a thousand words it is this one... with Ike smiling and jolly, seemingly relaxed for the camera and MacArthur slightly stiff and withdrawn. Tom Shafer was a combat photographer in WWII, covered 18 troop landings with the 1st Cavalry Division, and also took the famous 'I have returned' shot of MacArthur wading ashore in the Philippines. After the war he spent some time in Japan, and took the first close ups of Emperor Hirohito, and became essentially the personal photographer to MacArthur. Ike was in Tokyo on an inspection trip visiting troops in the Far East. The photograph appeared in newspapers on June 2, 1946, and Shafer personally had the two generals sign the photograph while Ike was in Tokyo.
