Provenance included: (1) Photocopy of the October 2, 1995 letter of Los Angeles barber Harry Gelbart, the person who snipped the hair off President Kennedy's head. In part: "This letter will serve to verify that the hair I have sent you indeed once belonged to the 35th President of the United States, John Fitzgerald Kennedy...I was first introduced to him when he was Senator John Kennedy by another of my clients, the actor, Peter Lawford, JFK's then-brother-in-law...On one occasion, on a Sunday afternoon in July of 1963, after giving the President a haircut at Lawford's beach house in Santa Monica, Lawford's manager, a gentleman named Milt Ebbins, suggested that I collect the hair that I had cut to save as a momento (sic)...It is a pleasure for me to pass this evidence of his existence on to you, so that it can be shared by others...." (2) Color copy of a notarized document attesting to the fact that Gelbart signed the October 2, 1995 original letter.(3) Photocopies of two newspaper articles about Gelbart cutting JFK's hair.(4) Photocopy of the October 17, 1949 "Life" magazine article entitled "Barbershop War" about rival Hollywood barbers, Harry Gelbart and Harry Drucker, picturing Gelbart. These strands of JFK's hair were part of the "Biggest Famous Hair Collection" listed in The Guinness 1999 Book of Records. The Guinness listing specifically mentions Kennedy's hair.
