    Signed John F. Kennedy Student Pilot Log Book, approximately 100 pp., 7.5" x 5.5", Miami, Florida, May, 1944. Already a war hero on account of his adventures with PT-109 in the South Pacific, a recuperating John F. Kennedy was at the Submarine Chaser Training Center in Miami during the spring of 1944. While in Florida, Kennedy took flight lessons and kept this modest log. The book contains an early signature reading "John F Kennedy - Lt. USNR and identification information such as name, address and emergency contacts. These latter named are his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph P. Kennedy. Ten manuscript entries for local training flights in a Piper Cub are entered between May 19 and May 29, 1944, the last being a solo flight. A signature line, First solo OK Ed S 185018" is no doubt an endorsement by Kennedy's instructor. Very light aging as expected, very fine condition. A unique relic by any standard.
