JOHN F. KENNEDY The Senator tells a Boston aide that a constituent must apply for a job before Kennedy can help him get it. Framed in the Gallery of History style to 33x21 Typed Letter signed: "Jack" as U.S. Senator, one page, 7½x10. Washington, District of Columbia, July 30, 1953. On his U.S. Senate letterhead to Mr. Anthony Galluccio, Boston, Massachusetts. Begins: "Dear Tony". In full: "Thank you for your note enclosing an experience sheet for Bob Mahoney. I have already written to him explaining that my recommendation would have to be in the line of a follow up and that he must initiate action in applying for a specific position. As soon as I hear from him again, I will follow though in his behalf." John F. Kennedy (1917-1963), a former U.S. Congressman from Massachusetts, was elected U.S. Senator from the state 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, not at signature. Fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 33¼x21¼.
