JOHN F. KENNEDY The U.S. Senator writes to Anthony Galluccio regarding a constituent's petition Typed Letter signed: "Jack" as U.S. Senator, 1p, 7½x10. Washington, District of Columbia, January 12, 1954. To Mr. Anthony Galluccio, Boston, Massachusetts. In full: "This is to let you know that I am immediately contacting the appropriate authorities, requesting their favorable consideration to the petition filed by Felice Pennacchio in behalf of her brother, Antonio. I am also requesting expeditious handling of this case, and you can be sure that when I receive a report in this connection, I shall again contact you." John F. Kennedy (1917-1963), a former U.S. Congressman from Massachusetts, had been elected U.S. Senator from the state in November 1952. He took office in January 1953, just less than a year before he signed this letter with his nickname, "Jack", which he reserved for friends and family. 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. Here, JFK corresponds with his longtime friend, Anthony Galluccio, who worked as a full-time staff member to get Kennedy elected to the Senate. Once Kennedy was in the Senate, Galluccio, an attorney, contacted him on behalf of people seeking recommendations for employment, immigration visas, and other matters. As the 35th U.S. President (1961-1963), on July 23, 1963, just four months before he would be assassinated in Dallas, Texas, JFK presented a plan for a new immigration policy that would end the quota system and encourage the reuniting of families. Kennedy's successor, President Lyndon B. Johnson, signed such a bill into law on October 3, 1965. Lightly creased with folds, not at signature. Fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 31¼x21¼.
