    John F. Kennedy 1935 Choate Yearbook. The Brief/ 1935, 292 pages, plus advertisements, 6.75" x 9.5". Choate Rosemary Hall, Wallingford, Connecticut. On page 76, JFK's class picture appears along with his nicknames ("Jack" and "Ken"), his physical attributes (age: 17; height: 5 ft. 11 in.; weight: 155 lbs.) and the organizations he had participated in since enrolling in September of 1931. Another picture of Kennedy appears on page 117, where he is listed as the Business Manager of the Brief. Page 107 records that Kennedy was voted "Most Likely to Succeed".

    Choate was a private university preparatory boarding school for boys grades 9-12. Kennedy graduated from Choate in June 1935 and went on to graduate from Harvard. The spine is missing and both covers are separated. The front and back free endpapers have partially separated from the spine, but all other pages are still bound. This copy belonged to "Cad Arrendell", a senior from Ponca City, Oklahoma, who signed the back paste-down endpaper. His is the only signature in the yearbook. Near very good.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
