Jackie's Ambulance Ride to Hospital the Day before John Jr.'s Birth, Recalled by Evelyn Lincoln, JFK's Secretary

 

1p autograph manuscript inscribed overall by Evelyn Lincoln (1909-1995), John F. Kennedy's personal secretary, relating the details of Jackie Kennedy's ambulance ride to the hospital on November 24, 1960, hours before the birth of John Jr. (1960-1999).

Many of the pieces in White's collection had been acquired through Lincoln, who had sold or given away Kennedy documents and personal effects in direct violation of the Kennedy estate's 1965 deed of gift. A court settlement restored the items from White's collection to the National Archives and the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in 2014.

Kennedy to the Georgetown Hospital. Soon after her arrival a son, John Fitzgerald Kennedy was born. Pres.

3. 1p photocopy of an invoice from Washington, D.C.-based "Hospital Ambulance, Oxygen and Equipment Co., Inc." dated November 24, 1960 and sent to the attention of "Senator John F. Kennedy / President-Elect of the United States". Jackie's physician Dr. John W. Walsh had ordered an ambulance equipped with an oxygen tank and an incubator for a premature infant. The bill totaling $20.00 included the mileage from the Kennedy home at 3307 N Street N.W. to the Georgetown University Hospital. John, Jr. was born the following day, on November 25, 1960.

 

Evelyn Lincoln served as JFK's personal secretary for over a decade, beginning when the politician was a Senator from Massachusetts, and until his assassination in Dallas in 1963. Lincoln recalled her experiences working for JFK in My Twelve Years with John F. Kennedy (New York: David McKay Company, 1965).
