JACQUELINE KENNEDY: NANCY TUCKERMANJacqueline Kennedy sends a typed invitation unsigned in letter form through her secretary. Typed Invitation, unsigned, 1p, 7¼x10½. New York, N.Y., 1977 November 4. On her personal letterhead to "Dear Dr. Appelbaum". Signed by her secretary, Nancy Tuckerman. In full: "Your letter arrived just as Mrs. Onassis was leaving for the country so she has asked me to write you saying she hopes very much that you will come to the dinner at the International Center of Photography, on November 9th, and she already has a ticket for you. Also, she would like you to sit at her table. It is not really Mrs. Onassis' party but a benefit for the Center and she is the Honorary Chairman of the event. Mrs. Onassis also said to tell you that she thinks the evening will be great fun and that she hopes very much you can be there. Sincerely". Born Jacqueline Bouvier in 1929, Jackie married John F. Kennedy in 1953. The third-youngest first lady, she left behind no policy initiatives but set a high standard for style and grace in her person and in the White House, and with her tragic dignity after her husband's assassination. From 1968 until his death in 1975, she was married to Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis. From 1978 to 1994 she was an editor at Doubleday in New York. Joseph P. Kennedy, Jackie's father in law, referred to in this letter as sick but still living, died on November 18, 1969. Although she influenced and wrote introductions for many other books, Jackie left no finished memoirs of her own. A manuscript like this one therefore offers rare insights into the memories of the First Lady of Camelot. NANCY TUCKERMAN, a lifelong friend of Jackie's and a bridal attendant at her 1953 wedding to JFK, was White House Social Secretary for the last seven months of Kennedy's Presidency and remained a spokesperson for Jackie. After she was hired as assistant to the publisher at Doubleday, she encouraged Mrs. Onassis to apply for a job there. Tuckerman also co-edited a reissue (1995) of Amy Vanderbilt's famous Book of Etiquette. Light mailing folds. Lightly creased at top edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
