Uncommon 1955 power of attorney
Description                           Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000          

DS, two pages, 8.5 x 13, June 8, 1955. Interesting power of attorney document, in part: “Know all men by these presents, that I, John F. Kennedy, of 122 Bowdoin Street, City of Boston, Commonwealth of Massachusetts, do hereby constitute, designate and appoint Paul E. Murphy, of No. 230 Park Avenue, City and State of New York, my true and lawful attorney, for me, in my name and stead.” In very good condition, with expected document wear, moderate to heavy overall creasing and wrinkling, and some skipping and stray ink marks to Kennedy’s signature. Murphy worked in Joseph Kennedy's New York office, where he oversaw some of the family’s business and issued checks for JFK’s expenses. At this time Kennedy was two years into his senatorial career but suffering from a series of medical difficulties, including a diagnosis of hypothyroidism a month earlier. A scarce and desirable document from the midpoint of JFK’s political career. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
