JOHN F. KENNEDYThe freshman Senator intercedes with the Veterans Administration for a constituent with a loan problem Typed Letter Signed: "John" as U.S. Senator, one page, 8x10½. Washington, District of Columbia, July 23, 1953. To Anthony Galluccio, Boston. In full: "In further reply to your interest in Mr. Leo Shea, 7 Lincoln Way, I am enclosing a copy of a letter [not present] I received from Mr. T.B. King, Director, Loan Guarantee Service, Veterans Administration, Washington. You will be pleased to note, I am sure, that a Certificate of Reasonable Value has been forwarded on July 15 and is no doubt in the hands of the lender at this time. I am happy to be of assistance in this matter, and if I can be of further service at any time to Mr. Shea, I hope he will let me know. With best personal regards, I am, Sincerely yours," 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 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. Staple holes at upper left. Lightly creased. Usual folds, not at signature. Otherwise, fine condition.
