JOHN F. KENNEDY
The future president writes to one of his constituents about helping another constituent to get a commission in the United States Naval Reserve.
Typed Letter Signed:"Jack-"as Congressman, 1p, 8x10½.House of Representatives, Washington, D.C., 1949 May 11. The stationery indicates that Kennedy was serving on the committees of Education and Labor and District of Columbia. To William F. Kelly, East Boston, Massachusetts. In full: "I have your letter of May 5th, with further reference to your interest in Thomas M. DiLorenzo, Jr. of 11 Antrim Street, East Boston, Massachusetts, a resident of my congressional district, who is anxious to secure a commission in the United States Naval Reserve. IN reply, I wish to advise you that I am again contacting the Director of the Office of Naval officer Procurement in Boston, and shall be happy to continue to do what I can in Mr. DiLorenzo's behalf. I am writing direct to him today, advising him as to the efforts I am making in his behalf; and I shall keep him informed as to the results. My best wishes to you and the family. Sincerely," At the age of 28, John F. Kennedy entered politics, involving most of the members of his family in his campaign to win the Democratic nomination for Congress in Massachusetts' Eleventh District. After beating out nine other candidates in the primary, he easily defeated the Republican nominee in the general election and served from 1947-1952. Known for his accessibility to his constituents, Kennedy supported most of President Truman's "Fair Deal" program, although he occasionally attacked the President's foreign policy. Lightly creased through bottom of "J" in Jack. File holes at upper blank margin. Overall, fine condition.
