JOHN F. KENNEDY Candid 11x13¾ bordered photograph of the President at the Beverly Hilton Hotel Photograph Unsigned: B/w, 11x13¾ overall, image 7¼x9 (two surfaces). Original candid photograph by William Linsman, Beverly Hills, California (stamped on verso). Accompanied by typed background, 1p, 8½x11. In full: "This candid photograph was taken by William Linsman of Beverly Hills on the evening of June 7, 1963. President Kennedy was attending a dinner with the top members of the entertainment industry at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The picture was taken after the President had left the dinner to greet a high school prom in the ballroom below. This was five months and fifteen days prior to his assassination." On parchment-like paper. Just four days after he attended this dinner, JFK would intervene when Alabama Governor George Wallace blocked the doors of the University of Alabama to prevent two Black students from entering. 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 the infamous assassination in Dallas Texas, on November 22, 1963, subject to numerous conspiracy theories in the decades since. Mat is lightly creased and slightly soiled. Light paper clip stain at right edge. Minor smudges (not evident head on) on photograph. Fine condition. Two items.
