Photograph Signed "Best - John Kennedy" as President taken September 25, 1961 during JFK's Speech to the United Nations
JOHN FITZGERALD "JACK" KENNEDY a.k.a. "JFK" (May 29, 1917 " November 22, 1963). 35th President of the United States, served as both a U.S. House Representative (1947-1953) and Senator (1953-1960) from Massachusetts, elected President of the United States from 1961 until his Death by Assassination in Dallas, Texas in November of 1963.
An impressive, sharp contrast Photograph is Signed, "Best - John Kennedy", as President, Framed, Choice Extremely Fine. This handsome Black and White Photograph measures 8" x 9.75" (by sight), modern custom matted and framed under "TRU VUE Museum Glass" to 14.5" x 16.25". The historic Photograph shows President Kennedy at a speaker's podium giving a speech. Although now framed, we know it to be stamped on the back of the photograph, "Newsweek Photo by Tony Rollo" with a pencil notation that it was taken September 25, 1961 during JFK's speech to the United Nations. Photo has two light creases at the bottom left corner, not affecting signature. The signature, "Best - John Kennedy" is beautifully and sharply written in blue ball-point below the image, as shown. A brass identification plaque is attached to the gold-gilt lined black painted wooden frame reading: "JOHN F. KENNEDY". Provenance: Said to have been from the George Foble collection, to the current consignor.
President Kennedy's address before the General Assembly of the United Nations 25 September 1961 in New York City. In his speech the President addresses the recent death of U.N. Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjold, presents six proposals for the new Disarmament Program, and provides information on the current crises in Laos, South Vietnam, and Berlin, Germany.
