    John F. Kennedy: Congressional Directories, 1949 AND 1951, picturing JFK in his first elected office. The 1949 directory is paper bound, 8.5" x 11.5", 80 pp, [Washington DC], 1949. The 1951 directory is cloth bound, 4.5" x 5.75", 196 pp, Washington D. C., 1950. Every two years, at the January commencement of a new Congress, official directories are published containing photographs of every elected member. This lot contains three items: (1) the Pictorial Directory of the 81st Congress, containing a photograph of John F. Kennedy at the age of 32 in his second term as a Congressman representing the 11th District of Massachusetts; (2) the Pocket Congressional Directory of the 82nd Congress, which includes a photograph of Congressman Kennedy in his third term; and (3) a sheet of JFK's Congressional letterhead (6.25" x 9"). Many other well-known politicians are within these pages, including several who became president of the United States. Both directories are a bit worn, but overall, in fine condition.

    From the collection of Dr. Dean Rudoy. For more information, please click here.
