President Eisenhower’s personally-owned off-white linen handkerchief, folded to an overall size of 5.25 x 5.25, finely embroidered in dark blue thread, “Ike.” In fine condition. Includes a letter of provenance on a White House card from Delores Moaney, the Eisenhower’s longtime personal cook and wife of Sgt. John Moaney, who served as Dwight D. Eisenhower’s valet beginning in 1942. In part: “The linen handkerchief with one corner monogrammed ‘Ike’ in medium blue letters was owned by President Eisenhower. My husband packed the President’s personal effects as they traveled together from 1942–1969.” An important personal artifact, straight from the pocket of the general to his own long-standing valet, Sgt. John Moaney. The Raleigh DeGeer Amyx Collection.
