Fantastic campaign flyer signed at the Mingo County Courthouse
Description  

Fantastic tri-fold campaign flyer for Senator John F. Kennedy’s 1960 presidential campaign, 3.75 x 9, boldly signed on the front in blue ballpoint. The flyer unfolds to a size of 11 x 17.5 and features several blurbs describing Kennedy’s qualities and achievements, describing him as a Pulitzer Prize winner, champion of labor, hard-hitting racket buster, fighter for durable peace, defender of civil liberties, and decorated war hero. In very good condition, with partial edge separations at folds, a few creases, light scuffs to the right of the signature, and toned tape remnants at the top and bottom. Consignor notes that this was originally obtained by his father in 1960 in front of the Mingo County Courthouse in Williamson, West Virginia. On April 25, 1960, Kennedy visited the towns of Williamson and Kermit in Mingo County, and spoke to a crowd in front of the courthouse about his candidacy in the upcoming Democratic primary. Facing off against the Congregationalist Hubert Humphrey in a state where religion was said to be a key factor, Kennedy unexpectedly won the West Virginia primary election on May 10, proving that a Catholic could be a viable national candidate. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
