JOHN F. KENNEDY and EUNICE KENNEDY SHRIVER
President and his sister sign 1960 Democratic magazine.
Magazine signed: "J. Kennedy" and "Carl/E Kennedy/Shriver", 32p, 8¼x11. "Democratic Digest", August 1960. Pages inside are newspaper quality. Published by the Democratic National Committee following the July 11-15, 1960, Democratic National Convention held in Los Angeles that nominated Massachusetts Senator John F. Kennedy for President and Texas Senator Lyndon B. Johnson (both pictured on this cover) for Vice President. When Senator Kennedy announced his candidacy for the presidential nomination in January 1960, his slogan was "Leadership for the Sixties". This magazine includes the 1960 Democratic Platform as well as numerous articles about the Kennedy and Johnson families. EUNICE MARY KENNEDY, fifth of nine children born to Rose and Joseph P. Kennedy, and a younger sister of John F. Kennedy, married Robert Sargent Shriver, Jr. in 1953. In 1961, Mrs. Shriver helped establish the Presidential Committee on Mental Retardation. In 1968, she established the Special Olympics as the first systematic effort to provide sports training and athletic competition for individuals with mental retardation. Nearly one million athletes in 130 countries now compete worldwide in 22 sports. More than 15,000 games, meets and tournaments are held annually. On March 26, 1984, President Reagan awarded her the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor established by President Kennedy in 1963: "With enormous conviction and unrelenting effort, Eunice Kennedy Shriver has labored on behalf of America's least powerful people, the mentally retarded. Over the last two decades, she has been on the forefront of numerous initiatives on behalf of the mentally retarded, from creating day camps, to establishing research centers, to the founding of the Special Olympics. Her decency and goodness have touched the lives of many, and Eunice Kennedy Shriver deserves America's praise, gratitude, and love." Three file holes at left edge, very slightly creased (not at signatures), inside pages uniformly tanned.
