    Description

    John F. Kennedy: White House Democratic Donkey Mascot Toy. Plastic donkey measuring 8 1/2" tall and 7 1/2" end-to-end. He wears a floppy hat and has a shield on either side titled "Demmy". It was made in Grafton, West Virginia, the site of some crucial presidential primaries. It is accompanied by a letter from Presidential Secretary Evelyn Lincoln, dated January 13, 1993, relating how it was a gift from a friend of the President's, Lem Billings, who thought it would distract young John-John when he came for a visit. It was placed in the "little room next to the Oval Office", but John-John soon lost interest in it and it slated for disposal.
