JOHN F. KENNEDY The Senator reports success in interceding with the Immigration and Naturalization Service on a constituent's behalf Typed Letter Signed: "Jack" as U.S. Senator, one page, 7¼x10. Washington, District of Columbia, July 20, 1953. On his U.S. Senate letterhead to Mr. Anthony Galluccio, Attorney & Counsellor (sic) at Law, Boston, Massachusetts. Begins: "Dear Tony". In full: "This will supplement my letter to you of July 7, relative to your interest in the case of Mrs. Lidia De Amenabar. I have just received a reply from the Acting Commissioner of the Immigration and Naturalization Service and am enclosing a copy for your information. I am confident the information contained in Mr. Habberton's letter will prove helpful to you, and in the event you feel there is anything further I can do to be of service to you, I shall be happy to have you contact me again." John F. Kennedy (1917-1963), a former U.S. Congressman from Massachusetts, was elected U.S. Senator in November 1952. He took office in January 1953, just six months before he signed this letter with his nickname, "Jack", which he reserved for friends and family. 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, lower horizontal fold near but not touching signature. Fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 35x22.
