    Description

    Original Kennedy Assassination UPI Teletype. A fine association piece, four original printouts of a portion of the United Press International teletype from November 22, 1963, each one page, 8" x 21.75". The teletype reads in broken phrases revealing the chaos of that November afternoon: "FLASH...FLASH...KENNEDY SERIOUSLY WOUNDED PERHAPS SERIOUSLY PERHAPS FATALLY BAY ASSASSINS BULLET...CLINT HILL, A SECRET SERVICE AGENT ASSIGNED TO MRS. KENNEDY, SAID 'HE'S DEAD,' AS THE PRESIDENT WAS LIFTED FROM THE REAR OF A WHITE HOUSE TOURING CAR..." The original owner has added a note noting the copy had come from the teletype machine in her office, adding "There wasn't a dry eye in the place..." Fine condition.
