Quick Overview

Original remarks of Senator John F. Kennedy at the Jefferson-Jackson Day Dinner at the Hotel Dupont, Wilmington, Delaware, May 14, 1953 with original handwritten notes of Kennedy. This rare document with the notes of JFK in his own handwriting, are also a glimpse into how Kennedy's speeches involved last minute changes of direction.

The three page of the speech includes five instances of notes that, then Senator Kennedy made in preparation for his speech- long before he ran for President of the United States. Some of the notes never made it into Kennedy's final speech, others show how Kennedy deleted certain comments and added others. For instance, Kennedy deleted a large section of a paragraph in the typed version regarding natural resources and the billions and billions of dollars of tideland resourced belong int to all the people to a few..."

These are the first three pages of the speech. Apparently there was at one time a fourth. It could be that the fourth included no changes so it was not kept.

The handwriting of Kennedy has been authenticated by a forensic document examiner and comes with this Certificate of Authenticity. In addition, we provide our own 100% guarantee of authenticity.
