John F. Kennedy Hand-notated typed manuscript

28 Dec

Remarkable typed manuscript draft for a campaign speech given in Dallas, Texas, on September 13, 1960, 11 pages, 8.5 x 11, with several notes penned on the reverse of the last page in Kennedy’s hand. In the speech, JFK offers thoughtful remarks on the Cold War and the implications of the coming election on relations between the United States and USSR. In part: “In a few days, our shores will be visited by the head of the Soviet Union. His voice will be heard in the United Nations—but his eyes will be fixed on the United States.
