    Description

    John F. Kennedy: His National Security Council Leather Binder Used During the Cuba Missile Crisis. Purchased by the consignor in the December 2005 Guernsey's auction of the Robert White Collection (lot 449), where it hammered for $5100. Expensively crafted of textured leather, with "THE PRESIDENT" in gold letters on the cover. 9.5" x 12", showing clear signs of handling and use, but in excellent condition. White undoubtedly obtained it from Evelyn Lincoln, and it was probably accompanied by her letter of provenance. But if such a letter existed, it was apparently lost prior to the binder being catalogued for the Guernsey sale.

    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.
