Autograph Note Unsigned: two pages, 4x5¼, separate sheets. Washington, D.C., May 24 (no year). On "United States Senate/Memorandum" sheets. Signed: "Langdon" at lower margin of each sheet. Addressed by Langdon to: "John F." In full: "They are now trying to attack RADIGAN! Cong. Bow (R., Ohio) who made that long pro-subsidy speech is doing it(Bow is on this appropr. subcommittee.) Radigan is very unhappy & Bow had told the acting Librarian that they are taking + $50,000 off the budget for Legisl. Ref. Service bec. of Radigan's activities in Am. Law Dir. of Legal. Ref.!!" On second sheet, Langdon continues: "I asked Radigan how he was coming on your request for a rebuttal of the Tipton legal points, & he expects to have it in 362 today or tomorrow. I asked him to be sure NOT to put 'Attn. Mr. Marvin' on it. That phrase on his May 19, 1953 opinion will be edited out of the appropr. hearings." At upper right margin of first sheet, Kennedy has written: "What is your/evidence?" and drawn an arrow to the reference to Congressman Bow. Marvin Langdon was a long-time Kennedy family business associate, who was involved with Kennedy Enterprises. Republican Frank T. Bow (1901-1972) was a U.S. Congressman from Ohio from 1951 until his death in office in 1972. John F. Kennedy (1917-1963), a decorated US Navy veteran of World War II, represented Massachusetts in the U.S. House of Representatives (1947-1953) and Senate (1953-1960). In 1957, he was named to the prestigious Foreign Relations Committee. During his first term as U.S. Senator, Kennedy co-wrote the Pulitzer Prize-winning Profiles in Courage while recovering from back surgery. The book discusses eight times in U.S. history where a U.S. Senator stood up for what he thought was right, no matter what his party or the public had to say. Kennedy went on to become the nation's 35th President. Sadly, his tenure in the Oval Office was cut short by his infamous assassination in Dallas Texas, on November 22, 1963, subject to numerous conspiracy theories in the decades since. Staple holes at upper left corners, file hole at upper margins. Slightly shaded at upper blank right margin. Otherwise, fine condition.
