    Description

    The Choate School 1935 Yearbook Featuring John F. Kennedy. Volume XXXVI of The Brief, the yearbook of the Choate School in Wallingford, Connecticut featuring the future war hero and president, John Fitzgerald Kennedy. A portrait of the young Kennedy is listed with his fellow sixth form classmates and a brief scholastic biography accompanies the portrait in which we discover that his nicknames were "Jack" and "Ken", that he resided at 294 Pondfield Road in Bronxville, New York, that he was on the golf squad, was manager of the Brief, and was heading to Harvard. Prophetically, his classmates voted him "Most Likely to Succeed". The internal contents of the yearbook are in near fine condition, however the spine is detaching with a large section missing, the front board has a large scar at one corner with abrasions to the edges of the boards. The yearbook is housed in a gorgeous modern custom quarter leather slipcase with six compartments between five raised bands, gilt titles, dark green cloth, matching inner box, in fine condition.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
