Description


ALS signed “Ethel,” three pages, 5.75 x 7.75, personal Hickory Hill letterhead, notated 1975. Letter to Robert S. McNamara, who served as secretary of defense in the cabinets of both John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson. In part: “We had our first meeting of the board last week without you—and I know what Jack meant when he said: ‘one man can make a difference’…I thought back over the years about what an extraordinary friend you were to Jack and Bobby and to Jackie and me. In that first year of searching for the right direction—lost in a bewildering cloud of doubt and confusion, your judgment, strength and bold spirit encouraged us to continue Bobby’s quest to seek a newer world. Bob—you were the rock on which all of us leaned. Your optimism was contagious, and your constant urging to look at the bigger picture resulted in improving the quality of life for many thousands. Bob—you were there when I needed you. What more can be asked of a friend?” In fine condition. Ethel Kennedy founded the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights in 1968, which is likely what she is referring to when she mentions continuing “Bobby’s quest to seek a newer world.” A choice association between sender and recipient, highlighted by excellent Kennedy family content. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
