ROBERT F. KENNEDY. TLS: "Robert F Kennedy" as Attorney General, 1p, 8x10½. Washington, D.C., 1963 June 20. On letterhead of Office of the Attorney General to Mr. Everett H. Erlick, Vice President and General Counsel, American Broadcasting - Paramount Theatres, Inc., New York, N.Y. In full: "We wish to thank you for your letter of June 11, 1963, for your attendance at our June 4 meeting, and especially for the distinctive contribution you have made to our enterprise by countless calls to pass along information and suggestions to Mr. Oberdorfer. These have been instrumental in giving substance and direction to our activities. We are most appreciative of your continuing attention to our effort, and most impressed by your concern. If at any time you feel we can assist you in these matters, we hope you will let us know." Five months after he wrote this letter, RFK's brother, President John F. Kennedy, was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. In June 1963, Robert began implementing court-ordered integration of the University of Alabama. Robert Francis "Bobby" Kennedy (1925-1968), the younger brother of John F. Kennedy, made a name for himself as Chief Counsel of the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Improper Activities in Labor or Management Field (1957-1960), investigating such labor leaders as Jimmy Hoffa. He left the office to successfully manage his brother John's successful presidential campaign in 1960. Named as his brother's Attorney General in 1961, Robert worked closely with JFK on such critical issues as the Bay of Pigs invasion, the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Civil Rights movement. After JFK's assassination, he served as President Lyndon B. Johnson's Attorney General from 1963-1964. Elected as a U.S. Senator from New York in 1964, "Bobby" served from 1965 until he was assassinated in Los Angeles in June 1968, just moments after declaring victory in the California presidential primary. Worthy of further research. Slightly creased with folds, not at signature. Receipt stamps at upper and lower right blank margins. Staple holes at upper left blank corner. Fine condition.
