Historic JFK scrawl hits auction block TODAY (Monday, 9/28) | The Insider

Click title for link to a Palm Beach Daily News (aka Shiny Sheet) article about some original hand-written drafts of an important speech by John F. Kennedy. These were written at the Kennedy estate on North Ocean Boulevard in Palm Beach. They were probably written in April 1959 around the time a formal meeting regarding his Presidential campaign committee took place there.

I've had the pleasure of visiting the former Kennedy estate and was tapped to consult on various historic preservation matters there by its most recent owner.

The papers go up for auction tomorrow (9/28).
