    John F. Kennedy: Outline of JFK's Feet Inscribed and Signed, 1953-1960. Senator Kennedy signs and outlines feet at Hyannis Port for custom-made shoes. 12.25" x 6.5", front and back, no date. At some time during his service as a United States Senator (1953-1960), John F. Kennedy was measured for custom shoes up in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts. One side of the page contains an outline of JFK's left foot within which he has made handwritten pencil notations: "HYANNISPORT / Senator John F Kennedy / Hyannis Port / Cape Cod / Massachusetts." Also written in pencil inside the outline are a series of fractions. Within the outline of his right foot, on the other side of the sheet, are more fractional notations. Accompanying this lot is a Sotheby's folder (1981) containing more information about this lot, including the fact that the drawing was prepared by Wildsmith & Co., a London bootmaker. Three filing holes, some wrinkles, and light soiling. Otherwise, fine condition. From the John K. Lattimer Collection, and previously owned by Charles Hamilton.

    From the collection of Dr. Dean Rudoy.
