Description

    Robert F. Kennedy: Harvard Yearbook 1946 and Football Programs. While at Harvard, Robert F. Kennedy worked hard to make the varsity football team. As an end, he was a starter and scored a touchdown in the first game of his senior year, before breaking his leg in practice. Yet, he earned his varsity letter when his coach sent him in for the last minutes of the Harvard-Yale game of 1948, wearing a cast. This collection includes three items: (1) The Harvard 1946 Album in which the future U.S. Attorney General and U.S. Senator is pictured three times-as a member of the 1944 Junior Varsity Football Team and the 1945 and 1946 Varsity Football Teams (hardbound, 11" x 14," 360 pp, Cambridge, Massachusetts); (2) the official program (9" x 12") for the Harvard vs. Yale Football Game of December 1, 1945 (RFK pictured once); and (3) the official program (9" x 12") for the Harvard vs. Boston University Football Game of October 4, 1947 (RFK pictured once). All items in very good to fine condition.

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

    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.
