1962 appointment of an African-American woman to the Committee on Equal Employment Opportunity
Description  

Partly-printed DS as president, one page, 21.75 x 17.75, November 5, 1962. President Kennedy appoints “Mrs. D’Jaris Hinton Watson, of New York…a Member of the President’s Committee on Equal Employment Opportunity…during the pleasure of the President of the United States for the time being.” Signed at the conclusion by Kennedy and countersigned by Secretary of State Dean Rusk. Document is affixed to an identical size mount. Some light toning and rippling to edges, and some light staining to upper right, otherwise fine condition. The large paper seal is lightly toned and slightly peeling away at the edges, but remains crisp and intact. Established in 1961 and headed by vice president Lyndon B. Johnson, the President’s Committee on Equal Employment Opportunity was formed to enforce laws against workplace discrimination based on race, color, and national origin. Following Kennedy’s assassination, Watson was reappointed to the committee by then-President Johnson, who found her a strong asset in the field. A scarce presidential document with close ties to Kennedy’s push for civil rights. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
