Description


Marvelous matte-finish 7.5 x 9.5 portrait of John F. Kennedy by Alfred Eisenstaedt, signed and inscribed on the mount in fountain pen, "For Senator Frank Church, a valued public servant, with the esteem and best wishes of his old friend and colleague, John Kennedy.” Archivally matted and framed to an overall size of 17 x 20. In fine condition. Accompanied by two photos of Church, one of which bears an autopen signature. Church was a prominent member of the Democratic Party who served as a United States Senator from Idaho from 1957 to 1981, and is perhaps best known for heading the Church Committee, which investigated abuses in the United States Intelligence Community; the Church Committee conducted a limited investigation of the Kennedy assassination, focusing on how well the FBI and CIA supported the Warren Commission. As a young senator, JFK traveled to Twin Falls, Idaho in 1956 to support Church in his second run for a senate seat. The friendship that subsequently developed between the two men is memorialized in this nice inscription to Church as written by the president.
