JOHN F. KENNEDY
John F. Kennedy draws doodles in pencil on United States Senate paper. Doodles, unsigned, 1p, 8x10½.
Pencil doodles on sheet imprinted: "United States Senate/Washington, D.C." JFK was known as a doodler, and, since sailing was one of the Kennedy family diversions, he often included sailboats in his doodles. He has also written "Russia" and drawn a box around it, the number "2,000", which he has circled, and several other figures. JFK's secretary, Evelyn Lincoln, mentions his doodles in her book, My Twelve Years with John F. Kennedy. John Fitzgerald Kennedy (1917-1963) was a Democratic U.S. Senator from Massachusetts from January 3, 1953-December 22, 1960, when he resigned having been elected the 35th U.S. President.
