Displayed is a 1956 John F. Kennedy signed U.S. Senate document. Kennedy became the youngest elected U.S. President when he assumed the Presidency in 1961, and he served as President until his assassination on November 23, 1963. The Harvard graduate served as a lieutenant (j.g.) in the U.S. Navy during World War II, and his wartime duty as the commander of PT-109 has been well documented. After his Naval service, Kennedy, a Democrat, was elected as a U.S. Congressman, representing Massachusetts, and he served in that capacity from 1947-53. He then was elected as a U.S. Senator, again representing Massachusetts , and he served in the Senate from 1953-1960, which included a full six-year first term and a partial second term before he became the 35th U.S. President in 1960. The JFK signed document measures 4.5x5.25". The document is a part of a larger document that apparently was sent from JFK's Senate Office to the Visa Office of the U.S. Department of State. In it, Senator Kennedy was apparently thanking an official in the State Department for help with a Visa problem for an unnamed person. The document is typed, and Kennedy has affixed his signature, in blue ink. The Kennedy signature is an 8.5/10 autograph. JFK was 38-years-old at the time he signed the document. The document is dated July 19, 1956, on the back. The offered document has been encapsulated and PSA/DNA certified as AUTHENTIC AUTO.
