History beckons, with this Robert F. Kennedy typed letter signed. Dated 8/28/64, this crisp 7x9 letter is typed on "The Attorney General" letterhead. With the nation in prolonged mourning over the assassination of JFK in 1963, donations for his presidential library continued to pour in from all corners. While RFK was the AG at the time, in was in his capacity as president of the John F. Kennedy Library Corporation, to correspond with Mr. and Mrs. Gordon Gurnee of Sherman Oaks, California. Robert held this position until he was also assassinated in 1968.
The contents express thanks for a contribution to the Kennedy Library, and also detail compliance with a request for Robert's autograph on a magazine cover. The once-folded letter bears a raised seal of office at top left, and with deference to the horizontal compacting fold at center, this crisp, clean letter shows NM+ detail, with distinct content and a bold signature. Gordon Gurnee is reported to have worked on several major Hollywood films in the 1950s-1960s.
Accompanying are an 8x10 portrait photo of Robert Kennedy in formal attire; and a full photo LOA from JSA, with an autograph grade designation of ("9").
